Fire restrictions on the Plumas National Forest (public land) were lifted effective Wednesday, Oct. 2.
“Cooler and wetter weather means safer conditions on the ground,” said Steve Millert, Plumas National Forest fire chief.
“Even though restrictions will be lifted, we still need hunters, hikers and campers to be very careful with campfires, stoves and cigarette smoking.” Campfire permits are required for fires outside of designated recreation sites.
Personal use woodcutting in the forest is already allowed with a permit.
For information about private land fire restrictions, residents should call their local California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) or city offices.
For more information about woodcutting on public land, or to obtain campfire permits, contact a local U.S. Forest Service office, or visit the Plumas National Forest website, fs.usda.gov/plumas.
