The burns are scheduled to take place Monday, Sept. 24, Tuesday Sept. 25 and Friday Sept. 28 on the undeveloped property located near Canada Valley Road and Vista Grande Road in Antioch.
"The project is an ongoing and cooperative effort between the property owner, City of Antioch and the fire district to clean up, secure and mitigate the fire hazard that currently exists on the property while providing wildland fire training for our crews," the district stated in a press release. According to the release, the property owners last week removed debris and abandoned vehicles left behind by illegal dumping and trespassing.
Live fire is expected to start at about 10 a.m. each day. Drivers along State Route 4 can expect to see smoke west of the bypass during burning operations.
