Fire restrictions lifted on BLM land

ARCATA, Ca (KIEM)-The Bureau of Land Management is lifting fire restrictions for California’s North West public lands.

The return of cooler weather means that visitors can use campfires outside of developed campgrounds and posted recreation sites.

The manager of the BLM Arcata field office would like to remind everyone to still be mindful of their fires. Even though we’ve had rain, people still need to be care with fire.

Fires should never be used on windy days, and it is imperative that campers fully extinguish campfires before leaving a campsite.

Campfire permits will still be required and are available at the BLM Arcata field office, National Forest and Cal Fire offices. They are also available online.
