CAL FIRE: Lassen Modoc Plumas Unit announces Burn Ban

BURN BAN IN EFFECT JULY 1, 2009
CAL FIRE NEWS RELEASE: Lassen Modoc Plumas Unit

Susanville – With peak fire season approaching and the weather getting hotter and dryer,
CAL FIRE announces all dooryard burn permits within Lassen, Modoc and Plumas Counties
will be SUSPENDED effective midnight June 30, 2009 (July 1, 2009).

The dooryard burning suspension (Burn Ban) will continue until formally canceled by CAL FIRE.

Dooryard burn permits will not be issued and dooryard burning is not allowed during this period of time. Agricultural vegetation control burns are still authorized with special permits issued from CAL FIRE and Air Quality. Campfire permits are still authorized in designated campfire areas only.

Each year CAL FIRE responds to nearly 1,600 fires started by Californians using equipment
the wrong way. Whether working to create a defensible space around your home, just mowing the lawn, or pulling your dirt bike over to the side of the road, if you live in a wildland area you need to use all equipment responsibly.
Lawn mowers, weed eaters, chain saws, grinders, welders, tractors, and trimmers can all spark a wildland fire.

Do your part, the right way, to keep your community fire safe.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
