Logtown East Side Fuel Reduction Project (LT-10)
“I am happy to announce that the contractor (Red Mountain Enterprises) has started work on the south end of Monitor Court and are making good progress. This project should add some protection to the east side of our community and tie into a similar project on the south end of Patterson. While this project will not stop a wind driven event like the Camp Fire in Paradise, it will help protect us from fires like the Patterson Fire last year and the Sand Fire several years ago. Shaded fuel breaks make air drops more effective, give our firefighters an advantage and can limit the rate of spread, like the fire a couple of months ago off Mica where a fuel break stopped the forward progress of the fire. Coupled with our status as a “Firewise” community it MAY help with insurance issues. I will update you as we make progress. One last thing, the contractor is from Idaho, so if you see trucks with Idaho plates, it may be Red Mountain.”
