L.A. County Fire To Conduct Helicopter Test At Pitchess

Thursday, October 12th, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. weather, air quality, and fuel conditions permitting, the County of Los Angeles Fire Department will conduct testing of a helicopter engine on the property of the Pitchess Detention Center/Wayside Honor Rancho. This is a Los Angeles County Sheriff facility located in Santa Clarita. This test burn will be in a very controlled setting and will not involve burning of brush piles, less than one acre.  

Residents in the area may experience some temporary noise pollution from water dropping helicopters, fire engines and work crews during the training burns.  There may also be some temporary inconvenience from smoke odors, particularly to smoke-sensitive persons.
