CAL FIRE Suspends Burn Permits in Tehama and Glenn Counties

Red Bluff After another wet winter and above average 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 Tehama and Glenn Counties. The burn suspension also includes Local Responsibility
Areas of Tehama County that are under the Tehama County Fire Department jurisdiction. This
suspension takes effect June 17, 2024, and suspends all residential outdoor burning of
landscape debris such as branches and leaves. Residents should check with their local fire
officials for burning restrictions in the Capay Fire District, Corning city limits, or if they live in
portions of Glenn County that are not in the SRA. Burning is not allowed within the City of Red
Bluff.

 

Here are some tips to help prepare homes and property:
Clear all dead and or dying vegetation 100 feet from around all structures.
Landscape with fire resistant 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.
