San Andreas, CA — Effective 8am today, the Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of CAL FIRE is requiring permits for all burning.
Hours for burning will be open throughout the day until the burning conditions become more hazardous due to drying weather.
Fire safe regulations include keeping your piles no larger than four feet in diameter, clear at least 10 feet to bare dirt in all directions around your burn pile, stay in attendance at all times with a shovel and a water source, apply enough water to make sure the fire has been totally extinguished and never burn on windy days.
Today, May 1, is a permissive burn day in the Mother Lode.
