Cal Fire suspends outdoor residential burning

Thursday, July 9, 2015 — As drought conditions continue to increase fire danger in the region, Cal Fire has suspended all burn permits for outdoor open residential burning within the State Responsibility Area of Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties.
    This suspension took effect at 8 a.m. Monday, June 29, and bans all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris including branches and leaves.
    “Last year the Intermountain Area experienced the Eiler Fire, the Bald Fire and the Day Fire: three fires that burned over 85,000 acres,” said Dave Junette, unit chief for the Lassen-Modoc-Plumas Unit of Cal Fire . “All three of these fires required evacuation, and many homeowners experienced firsthand how difficult it can be when you are not prepared.”
