One thought on “Azalea Prescribed Fire Planned

  1. The Prescribed Burn went as planned, the report from Wilsonia was that there was very little smoke drifting into the village. The only problem reported was some downed phone lines, affecting service for cabin owners in the southwest corner of the village.
    From Reedley, I could clearly see the plume of smoke from the fire (nice to be able to pinpoint the position of Wilsonia from my house.)
