Be Extra Careful Burning Debris
The Humboldt-Del Norte Unit of CAL FIRE Urges Safety During Outdoor Burning – after three debris burn fire’s escape in the last three days. CAL FIRE is urging the community to use extreme caution while clearing property debris.
CAL FIRE has not suspended burning nor is requesting permits. We are suggesting that you follow the instructions on your Air Quality Burn Permit to assure it is a “burn day” at 1-866-BURN DAY/1-866-287-6329. Before burning, we urge the landowner to be aware of the fire conditions including wind in their area. We support the land owner in cleaning vegetative material from their landscape by providing 100 feet of clearance around structures, which provides the defensible space needed for fighting wildland fires along with ensuring firefighting safety.
