Burn Permits Suspended In Tuolumne And Calaveras Counties

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, Ca — The Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of CAL FIRE will suspend all burning permits effective 8am, Thursday, October 25th.

The declaration rescinds all previously approved Dooryard Burn Permits and large-scale Project Burn Permits. Property owners wishing to burn debris on their land are now prohibited from doing so unless they can prove that their project burn must be completed for health or safety reasons.

Camp fires will be allowed in designated campgrounds with permission of the jurisdictional authority. Anyone with questions about this declaration may contact their nearest CAL FIRE facility.

CAL FIRE Tuolumne/Calaveras Unit Chief Mike Noonan says, “Although all fires cannot be prevented through a burning suspension, their numbers can be significantly reduced.”

The suspension will continue until further notice.
