Fire restrictions lifted on Lassen National Forest
Sept. 26, 2013 — Due to recent changes in weather and conditions, Lassen National Forest officials will lift fire restrictions as of midnight tonight, Thursday, Sept. 26.
This means forest visitors may once again have campfires outside of developed campgrounds and recreation sites, although campfire permits will still be required. Fire officials remind forest visitors to keep campfires small and be sure they are dead out and cold to the touch before leaving camp.
This action also rescinds the “hoot owl” provision, which means chainsaws no longer have a 1 p.m. shutdown time and may instead be used all day on Lassen National Forest lands. Woodcutters must have valid woodcutting permits, and their chainsaws must be equipped with spark arresters.
Fire officials caution that although fire restrictions are being lifted, conditions remain dry in many areas and fire danger still exists.
