Controlled Burn Scheduled in Western Malibu Wednesday

Barring poor weather conditions, the California State Parks and Ventura County Fire departments are slated to burn two large piles of natural wood debris in the Point Mugu area on Wednesday.

The controlled burn could last overnight into Thursday morning. One pile is scheduled to be burned at Sycamore Cove Beach, and another at Thornhill Broome in Point Mugu State Park. District Supt. Craig Sap said the burn would likely begin around 9 or 10 a.m.

Wooden debris washed down the hillsides in the park during recent storms, much of it the charred remains of vegetation that burned in the 2013 Ventura County Springs Fire, Sap said. 

State Parks workers are leading the controlled burn, and Ventura firefighters will be on hand to monitor. 

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
