Big Bear Lake, CA, September 20, 2012, 6:00am – Forest Service contractors are set to begin fuels reduction work on the south side of Big Bear along forest road 2N10. The 108-acre project area is located between Moonridge and Snow Summit along the popular 2N10 Mill Creek Forest Road and 2N10E, and the work will create a 300-foot wide fuelbreak. During the logging operations, the public is asked to exercise extreme caution in the area.  During the project, 2N10 Mill Creek Road will be subject to delays in the area to keep forest visitors safe, while heavy equipment is working. Forest visitors should stay out of logging areas during the project for their own safety. Logging areas are dangerous even when timber workers are not in the area. The project is part of the on-going work on the south side of the Big Bear community to reduce hazardous fuels.
