Reno, NV (February 7, 2024) – Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue (TMFR) crews will be burning approximately 250 piles on the west side of Mount Rose Highway, just south of Galena Creek Regional Park and Douglas Fir Drive beginning tomorrow, Thursday, February 8 through Saturday, February 10.
Current conditions are optimal to prevent any fire spread because the snow is deep and wet. TMFR crews will be on-site around the clock to oversee the prescribed burn operations and will monitor closely for smoke drifting onto Mount Rose Highway.
Burning will start at 8 a.m. Expect to see smoke sightings in this vicinity and avoid calling 9-1-1. We appreciate the patience of our residents as we work to reduce the threat of wildfires.
