Burn Permit Information

During certain times of the year, when fire danger is lower, residential debris burning of dead vegetation is allowed in many areas. You should always check with your local CAL FIRE station or local fire department to obtain any necessary permits if required. Be sure to check with your local air quality management agency before burning.

To find out if it is a permissive burn day in your area, contact your local Air Pollution Control District. Contact information may be found at the State Air Resources Board website.  When the weather begins to warm up and fire danger increases, CAL FIRE will restrict all residential debris burning. When a burn restriction is in place there is absolutely no debris burning allowed.

JUNE 18, 2014 - Due to this winter's lack of rain and critically dry conditions, CAL FIRE Director Ken Pimlott issued an order to suspend open burning across 31 million acres of State Responsibility Area in California effective no later than July 1, 2014. The suspended burning order is part of CAL FIRE’s continued efforts to mitigate the increased threat of wildfire due to the state’s drought emergency.
