Fire restrictions now in effect

Sunday, July 19, 2015 — Forest officials have announced fire restrictions will go into effect on the Lassen National Forest beginning Wednesday, July 1, and continuing through the declared end of the 2015 fire season.
    The restrictions address campfire use, off-road driving, smoking, woodcutting and other activities on the Forest.  Such restrictions are ordered every year when the temperatures rise and cause the forest to dry out and become much more susceptible to wildfires.
    “With extreme drought conditions across the state, any fire start has the potential to grow rapidly,” said Lassen National Forest Supervisor Dave Hays. “These restrictions will help us manage this risk.”
 
Highlights of the restrictions in effect include:
    •Open fires are prohibited outside of designated, developed campgrounds and camp sites, even with a valid California campfire permit.
