Cal-Fire Burn Permits Required Monday

Cal-Fire Burn Permits Required Monday

Come Monday at 8 a.m. both the Amador-El Dorado and the Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of Cal Fire will require burning permits within the State Responsibility Areas.  Cal Fire reports burn hours will not be restricted, but that could change with conditions and result in a transition to nighttime burning.   Cal-Fire urges property owners to be ready for the coming fire season by creating and maintaining 100 feet of defensible space around all structures.  Also as a reminder, a burn pile must be limited to a maximum of four feet by four feet  and cleared down to bare soil 10 feet from the outer edges of burn piles.  Always have water and a shovel close by and never leave your fire unattended.  Additionally, never burn on a windy day.  Burning is only permitted on permissive burn days. You can pick up your FREE residential burn permit at most of the local staffed Cal-Fire stations Monday-Friday during business hours.  For tips on residential landscape debris burning safety or other fire safety topics, visit the CAL FIRE website.
