  • Cal Fire building fuel breaks throughout Sierra Nevada mountains

    Tiny bark beetles have decimated Sierra Nevada forests, aided by California's severe four-year drought that weakened pines and left them vulnerable to pests. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, Caltrans, Fresno County, local fire-safe councils and California’s two largest electric utilities are funneling millions of dollars to cut down dead and dying trees in the Sierra Nevada. Caltrans officials estimate they will remove upwards of 40,000 trees statewide along highways this year. Cal Fire Division Chief Jim McDougald explains the effort underway.

    Maybe you’ve seen these guys caught on camera. If you have, the Fresno Police Department would like to know because on Nov. 10, 2017 they were recorded at a home in the area of north Channing Ave. and west Alluvial Ave. in Fresno. The victim, who was home at the time, reported hearing glass breaking and discovered a broken door. Call (559) 498-STOP if you information.
