Safe Debris Burning

Now that CAL FIRE has declared an end to fire season and the start of Open Burning, please follow these tips for a safe burn pile:
  1. Check if it’s okay to burn before lighting your burn pile by calling (530-274-7928) or checking online.
  2. Landscape debris piles must be no larger than 4 feet by 4 feet.
  3. Clear all flammable material and vegetation within 10 feet of the outer edge of pile.
  4. Keep a water supply and shovel close to the burning site.
  5. A responsible adult must be in attendance until the fire is out.
  6. Don't burn unless weather conditions (particularly wind) are such that burning can be considered safe.
  7. Never burn garbage, construction debris, painted wood, plastic, etc. (as doing so would release highly toxic pollutants). 
  8. For best smoke dispersion, burn between 9 AM and 3 PM.
