CAL FIRE Suspends Burn Permits in Shasta & Eastern Trinity Counites

Shasta Trinity Unit After a wet winter and aboveaverage snowpack, 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
within the State Responsibility Area of Shasta and Eastern Trinity Counties. This suspension takes effect at: 8:00 a.m.
Monday, June 17, 2024, and bans all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris such as branches and leaves.


Here are some tips to help prepare homes and property:
• Clear all dead and/or dying vegetation 100 feet from around all structures.
• CAL FIRE recommends removing the vegetation with mowers prior to 10 AM.
• Landscape with fireresistant plants and nonflammable ground cover.
• Find alternative ways to dispose of landscape debris like chipping or hauling it to a biomass energy or green

waste facility.
