I want to report a concerning and toxic looking fire I noticed at 12 pm on 1/23 while driving on highway 98. I don’t know if this was a controlled or allowed fire but it is not healthy for our community to breath this air.
2/8/2022: Please report fire/air related complaints immediately to the Imperial Valley Air Pollution Control District hotline (442) 265-1800. This report was forwarded to APCD on February 8, 2022 @ 9:15 a.m.
ICAPCD investigated this report, which was regarding a concern (submitted via an anonymous party on IVAN) of a toxic looking fire on Sunday January 23, 2022 at approximately 12:00 p.m. The location of the fire, according to the reporting party, was Kubler and Corda Roads in Calexico, CA. ICAPCD Enforcement Staff confirmed that the field in question was an ICAPCD-approved controlled burn scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on January 23, 2022. The location of the field was Wisteria Canal, Gate 66, which is located at the intersection of Kubler & Corda Roads west of Calexico, CA. The scheduled burn was carried out without incident, and the approximate acreage of the burn was 85 acres.
