White Wolf Public Safety Burn Completed

ARVIN, Calif., On June 27th, 2024, Kern County firefighters worked through the night, completing the 7 mile long, 95 acre White Wolf Public Safety Burn. Months of planning and preparation culminated with two long nights of successful, prescribed burning.

Firefighters on engines, patrols, dozers and handcrews worked as a team to safely accomplish this task.  Crews burned a section at a time in a controlled and calculated manner. Pauses were conducted incrementally to restrain the fire intensity, allowing for beneficial fire to renew the landscape.

This buffer along Highway 223, from Arvin to Highway 58, will help prevent a fire from extending from the roadway into the surrounding wildlands. This adds protection to the nearby communities of Bear Valley Springs, Stallion Springs, Keene and Hart Flat. It will also aid in protecting the land and habitat on the Tejon Ranch.
