CAL FIRE and CAL TRANS working together

 CAL FIRE crews from Fenner Conservation Camp and Pilot Rock Conservation Camp are spending the day clearing away overgrown vegetation and debris from the southbound lanes of State Highway 18.  Six crews are clearing a roadside area from a mile above the Old Waterman Canyon Road turnoff to the Highway 18 Sierra Way split.  This combined effort will reduce the fire start potential by removing dead and decadent vegetation from immediately adjacent to the roadway.  CAL FIRE crews regularly perform this type of highway roadside clearing with CAL TRANS.
