Burn Suspension For Amador

Burn Suspension For Amador

Effective this Monday, CAL FIRE will suspend all burn permits for outdoor residential burning within the State Responsibility Area of Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento, and Alpine Counties.   According to CAL FIRE Amador- El Dorado Unit Chief Scott Lindgren, “Conditions throughout the region have become such that it is no longer safe for the public to perform residential debris burning.  Cal Fire needs everyone to make sure they are performing defensible space clearing in a safe way.  Lindgren says the department may issue restricted temporary burning permits if there is an essential reason due to public health and safety.   Agriculture, land management, fire training, and other industrial-type burning may proceed if a CAL FIRE official inspects the burn site and issues a special permit.  The suspension of burn permits for residential landscape debris does not apply to campfires within organized campgrounds or on private property.  Campfires may be permitted if the campfire is maintained in such a manner as to prevent its spread to the wildland.  A campfire permit can be obtained at local fire stations or online at PreventWildfireCA.org.
