Burn Suspension
for residential burn piles

CAL FIRE Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit
 Burn Suspension Jan. 20 at 12:01AM - Proclamation
CAL FIRE has issued a SRA Burn Suspension effective midnight tonight.  This is very rare for the winter and normally occurs during the peak of summer, however this is reflective of the drought, dry fuel conditions, and weather.
A Burn Suspension "only" applies to residential burn piles, dooryard burning, etc.  Agriculture (vineyards) and timber operations are still allowed to proceed but REQUIRE a CAL FIRE LE-5 Burn Permit. Campfires, ceremonial fires, etc. are also exempt and do not need a LE-5. 
CAL FIRE personnel will conduct a site visit as part of issuing LE-5s to discuss fire safety, how to acquire burn day status, and whom to notify when initiating burning.  We will emphasis that no burning shall occur when it is windy regardless of the burn day status and they are responsible if the fire escapes.  All air quality regulations are still required to be followed in addition to the LE-5 requirements.

****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.
