Yesterday, Firefighters Responded to Six Illegal Debris Burns
Press release from Cal Fire:
The CAL FIRE Humboldt-Del Norte Unit would like to remind the public that the burn suspension remains in effect. Burning during the suspension can result in enforcement action under Health and Safety and Public Resources Codes. Additional civil and criminal charges apply for burning non-approved combustibles, if a fire escapes your control or burns another property. On September 25, 2020, fire resources responded to six illegal debris burns throughout Humboldt County. Burning during the suspension increases fire hazard, negatively impacts air quality and generates 911 calls requiring local resources to investigate.
Non-approved combustibles shown above are never legal to burn
CAL FIRE and the North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District (NCUAQMD) will notify the public when the burn ban is lifted.v
