All Burn Permits Will Be Suspended Starting Monday

Residential burn permits in the Shasta-Trinity Unit of Cal-Fire, which had been extended for a couple of weeks for areas above one thousand feet in elevation, will all be suspended after this weekend. All burn permits at any elevation were suspended at the beginning of July for the Cal-Fire Tehama-Glenn Unit, as well as Siskiyou. In the Shasta-Trinity Unit, officials said the wet winter and mild temperatures kept fuel moisture levels high, allowing for the extension of the season at higher elevations, but that will end as of next Monday. Since the start of the year Cal-Fire has responded to more than 2100 wildfires around the state. Cal-Fire Unit Chief Brett Govea says residents still need to find ways to clear at least 100 feet of defensible space around their homes without the use of metal bladed tools.
