Burn ban lifted by Cal Fire

Northern California - Cal Fire and the Arcata Fire Protection District have lifted the burning ban for Humboldt, Del Norte and parts of Trinity and Siskiyou counties.

Back on July 1st, officials instituted the ban because of California’s record drought and abnormal wildfire season. Recent rainfall has allowed authorities to rescind the ban.

Safe burning still requires a minimum of 10 feet clearance around piles and an adult must be present at all times. When burning piles are larger than 4x4 feet, a Cal Fire permit must be acquired. If a burning operation escapes, causing a wildland fire, both criminal and civil action can be taken against the responsible party.

For more information, call Cal Fire at: 707-726-1270.
