Burn permit suspension lifted in Plumas County

The burn permit suspension in Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties has been lifted. CalFire LMU Unit Chief Scott Packwood formally canceled the burn permit suspension and advises that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days with no restriction on hours. Agricultural burns must be inspected by CalFire prior to burning until the end of the peak fire season.

Cooler temperatures, higher humidity and cooler weather have helped to diminish the threat of wildfire. Property owners and residents are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns, follow all guidelines provided, and always maintain control of the fire. Individuals can be held civilly and/or criminally liable for allowing a fire to escape their control and/or burn onto neighboring property.

Residents must verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning by calling their local Air Pollution Control District. In the event of any forecasted wind events, you must ensure your dooryard burn pile has been extinguished and secured.
