San Andreas, CA — CAL Fire announces that burn permits will be required starting next week in the state responsibility areas of Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties.
Until CAL Fire stations are fully staffed later in the season, permits will be available only on weekdays, during regular business hours. They can be obtained at the CAL Fire Headquarters in San Andreas, Twain Harte FFS, Station 51 in Mono Village, Blanchard FFS, Groveland CSD, Ebbetts Pass FPD (Arnold) and the Ebbetts Pass FPD Station 3 (Hathaway Pines).
You are only allowed to burn on permissive burn days, and CAL Fire recommends against burning when it is windy. Other rules are listed on the permit. For information on creating defensible space, go to http://www.fire.ca.gov/.
