Each allowable fire type may only be conducted during its permissive burn period.

The Air Pollution Control Officer may extend the burn periods for orchard pruning and crop replacement fires.

Most allowable fires are limited to Burn Days, as declared by the Air District.

Any proposed burn may also be restricted by local fire or other officials.

No burning will be allowed before 10:00 am

On permissive burn days, contact your local permit official before burning.
