A scheduled controlled burn aimed at clearing excess vegetation over two days near Idyllwild was canceled, but may be rescheduled for a future date, officials said Tuesday.

Firefighters had planned to burn brush and debris scattered throughout 10 acres of land in the area of McGovern Road and the San Jacinto Truck Trail in the community of Pine Cove, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

The operation, which was scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, was canceled shortly after it was announced. The fire department did not give reason for the cancellation, or provide any details regarding a future date.

Anyone with questions or concerns should contact the county fire public information bureau at 951-940-6985.
