After another wet winter, warming temperatures and winds are quickly drying out the abundant annual grass crop. The increasing fire danger posed by the high volume of dead grass and hotter, drier conditions in the region is prompting CAL FIRE to suspend all burn permits for outdoor residential burning for the higher elevations of eastern Tehama County, which includes the communities of Mineral, Childs Meadows, Deer Creek, and Mill Creek. This suspension takes effect Monday July 2, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. and prohibits all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris such as branches and leaves. The residential burn permit suspension went into effect for the rest of Tehama County and the State Responsibility Areas (SRA) of Glenn County June 11, 2018.
