All's Clear After Mount Burdell Controlled Burn

Fire officials scorched a few acres on the mountain.

Everything went according to plan on the Mount Burdell controlled burn on Wednesday.

Mike Giannini, a battalion chief with the Marin County Fire Department, said weather conditions and strike team personnel were just right so that a closely watched burn could take place from 9 a.m. to about noon. The spot was about two acres along Cobblestone Fire Road above Hidden Lake. 

The Marin County Open Space District mailed postcards in late June to 300 property owners who live within 1,000 feet of the Mount Burdell Preserve informing them of a controlled burn the week of July 9, but the burn was postponed because of weather conditions.

I am very glad they did this and they handled the notification process very well. The barbed goat grass has been spreading very rapidly and needed to be removed. Now if we can only get the city to take care of all the dry brush everywhere! Oh wait now I remember, that money was spent on consultants and signage.......
