Cal Fire Lifts Burn Suspension For Amador And More

Cal Fire is lifting the burn permit suspension in Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento and Alpine Counties. As of 8 AM this morning, Amador-El Dorado Unit Chief Scott Lindgren has formally canceled the burn permit suspension and advises that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days. Agriculture burns must still be inspected by Cal Fire prior to burning until the end of the peak fire season. While cooler temperatures, higher humidity and winter weather have helped begin to diminish the threat of wildfire, Lindgren reminds area residents, this is not the end of fire season and that Cal Fire burn permits will be required until the end of fire season. Property owners and residents are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns, follow all guidelines provided, and maintain control of fire at all times. Individuals can be held civilly and/or criminally liable for allowing a fire to escape. Residents must also still verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning. In Amador County call 223-6246.
