NOPS: BTU, TGU - CAL Fire Units declare end of fire season

Butte County Fire (a CalFire division) joined the Tehama-Glenn CalFire Unit Monday in declaring Monday November 1 the official end of fire season.

The burn ban in effect since May 2010 was lifted this morning in both CalFire units, and burn permits will no longer be required until May 1 of next year.

The end of fire season depends on cooler weather and the "reduced menace" of wildfire.However, officials still advise people be cautious when conducting burns in both areas.
