CAL FIRE suspends outdoor residential burning

Tribune staff report

As drought conditions continue to increase fire danger in the region, CAL FIRE suspended all burn permits for outdoor open residential burning within the State Responsibility Area of Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento and Alpine counties. This suspension bans all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris including branches and leaves.

The department may issue restricted temporary burning permits if there is an essential reason due to public health, safety. Agriculture, land management, fire training, and other industrial-type burning may proceed if a CAL FIRE official inspects the burn site and issues a special permit.
