CAL FIRE Suspends Burn Permits

After a wet winter, warming temperatures are quickly drying out the abundant annual grass crop. The increasing fire danger posed by the high volume of dead grass and hotter, drier conditions in the region is prompting CAL FIRE to suspend all burn permits for outdoor residential burning within the State Responsibility Area of Lassen, Modoc, and Plumas Counties.
This suspension takes effect June 26, 2017 and bans all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris such as branches and leaves. Click here to read more.
