Burn Day Differs In Mother Lode Counties

Sponsored by:

Sonora & San Andreas, CA — Friday, March 30, is a “permissive” burn day in Tuolumne County but a “negative” burn day in Calaveras County.

Phone numbers for burn days: Sonora; (209) 533-5598 … Calaveras County; (209) 754-6000 … Copperopolis; (209) 785-7664. The burn day information line for Amador County is (209) 223-6246.

The Burn Day notification on the home page of is checked each morning for all three counties. A ´call´ designation usually indicates that the 3 counties are not in agreement about whether or not it is a permissive burn day. In this case, it is necessary to call and confirm the burn status for your county before lighting a bonfire.
