Nevada, Placer and Yuba County Residential Burn Permits Suspended

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection announced that residential burn permits in Nevada, Placer and Yuba counties will be suspended beginning Friday in areas that fall under Cal Fire's jurisdiction.

Beginning Friday, all fires or smoke reported to Cal Fire will be considered a wildfire and a full suppression response will be dispatched, according to a Cal Fire news release Tuesday.

Anyone who burns in violation of the suspension will be subject to civil or criminal action and could face cost recovery charges for the fire suppression response, fire officials said.

The burn ban will stay in effect until enough rainfall accumulates in the fall to warrant lifting the suspension.
