Supervisors Consider Defensible Space Law

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors is considering an ordinance that would require defensible space against fires. The law would require the clearing of vegetation at least 100 feet around structures and 30 feet along the property line if the neighbor’s structure is less than 100 feet from the line. Failure to establish defensible space could result in the county declaring a fire hazard and public nuisance subject to abatement. In such a case, the county could cut the defensible space and bill the property owner for the costs.
