Prescribed burn smoke will be visible throughout Placer, Yuba, Nevada

Placer, Yuba and Nevada county residents should not worry if they see raging orange flames and plumes of smoke today as a prescribed burn that started at 10 a.m. continues through the evening.

The burn is occurring underneath the Middle Fork American River Canyon bridge, about a mile northeast of Auburn. The Lake Clementine Trail is also closed as part of the burn.

Smoke will be visible from Interstate 80, Highway 49, Auburn, Foresthill and the surrounding areas, according to Cal Fire.

Fire engines, hand crews, bull dozers and a helicopter will be working to keep the fire within its lines and Cal Fire will continue to monitor the area in the next several days, according to a Cal Fire news release.
