CAL FIRE Lifts Burning Restrictions Within Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit



       

By: Chelsea Fox, CAL FIRE

AUBURN, Oct. 15, 2010 – Cooler weather and decreased fire danger has allowed CAL FIRE, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, to reduce burning restrictions in some areas of Northern California. CAL FIRE officials have declared an end to the suspension of all residential burning within state responsibility areas of Nevada, Yuba and Placer counties effective Monday, October 18 at 8 a.m.

“Burn permits will be required due to the potential for fire danger to fluctuate in the coming weeks,” said CAL FIRE Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit Chief Brad Harris. “Residents must always use caution when burning, follow all guidelines and maintain control of their fire at all times.”

CAL FIRE officials will coordinate with local Air Pollution Control Districts on the daily burn day status. Residents must obtain a valid burn permit and burn only on permissive burn days. The subsequent requirements, listed on the burn permit, must be followed:

* Maximum pile size 4 foot in diameter.

* Clear all flammable material and vegetation within 10-feet of the outer edge of the pile.

* Keep a water supply close to the burning site.

* An adult should be in attendance with a shovel until the fire is put out.

* No burning shall be undertaken unless weather conditions (particularly wind) are such that burning can be considered safe.

Keep in mind – violations of any burning permit terms are a violation of state law. If a fire escapes a homeowner’s control they can be issued a citation and be held liable for suppression costs and damages. Burn permits can be obtained at all CAL FIRE facilities. Residents can confirm burn day status by calling the appropriate phone number:

Placer County: (800) 998-2876
Nevada County: (530) 274-7928
Truckee area: (530) 582-1027
Yuba County: (530)741-6299
