CHEESEBORO CANYON : Area to Be Closed for Controlled Burn

Cheeseboro Canyon will be closed to the public today so the National Park Service can conduct a controlled burn there, the agency announced Tuesday.

The service will burn 450 acres of dry brush that could otherwise fuel wildfires in the area, a Park Service statement said. Residents of the Agoura area should keep their windows and doors closed during the day to prevent wind-borne ashes from drifting in, the Park Service advised.

The burn will begin at 7 a.m.
