Burn permits required May I Effective Thursday, May i, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) Lassen-Modoc-Plumas Unit will require dooryard burning permits for residential burning within Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties. Burning permits are required from May 1 to midnight June 30 for all residential burning on State Responsibility Area lands. Burning may only be done on permissive burn days. To ffmd out if it is a permissive burn day, contact the local Air Pollution Control District: --Lassen County: 257-2876 or 257-BURN Modoc County: 233-6401 or 640-2900 --Plumas County: Portola 832-4528; Quincy 283-3602; Greenville 284-6520; Chester 258-2588 At midnight June 30, a burning suspension will go into effect until the end of the declared fire season or until lifted by the unit chief. Only natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings may be burned. Household garbage may not be burned. Do not burn on windy days. Do not burn in a burn barrel without receiving authorization from the local APCD. Burning may only be done during permissive times. Burn hours for Lassen County are as follows: May 1 - May 31: open hours Junel - June 30:5 a.m. - noon Burn hours for Modoc County are as follows: May 1 - May 31: open hours June 1 - June 30:7 p.m. - 10 a.m. Burn hours for Plumas County are as follows: May 1 - May 31: open hours June 1 - June 30:5 a.m. - 11 a.m. l Residents must have a signed permit in their possession while they are burning and they are responsible for maintaining control of the fire at all times. Possession of a permit does not protect a resident if his or her burn escapes. The resident is still liable for any suppression costs. If a burn escapes control, seek help immediately. Wildfires can spread very quickly. A fast response from the fire department can reduce suppression cost considerably. The resident may be billed for suppression costs, so the sooner he or she seeks help the better the outcome may be. Simple common sense can greatly reduce the chance of an escape. Residents should not conduct a burn when they don't feel it's safe to do so. The lack of precipitation this winter may necessitate an early burn suspension. Keep informed about burn restrictions by visiting fire.ca.gov/lmu under "Hot Topics." Firewood permits sold out According to Forest Service officials, special green firewood permits for the Snake Lake green firewood cutting area were sold out in less than a day. "We were extremely pleased with the response and amazed, actually," said Joe Smailes, supervisory forester for the Mt. Hough Ranger District. Smailes is hopeful wood cutters will leave the cutting area cleaned up according to permit specifications. "If the cleanup looks good, we'll make more permits available in another cutting area," he said. Standard wood cutting permits are available at all Plumas National Forest offices. See fs.usda.gov/ plumas for a list of offices and other forest information.
