CAL FIRE Suspends Burn Permits in Alpine, Amador, West El Dorado, Eastern Sacramento, and North-Eastern San Joaquin Counties as of June 10, 2024 at 12:01 am

After a wet winter and above average snowpack, warming temperatures and winds are quickly drying out the abundant annual grass crop. The increasing fire danger posed by the high volume of dead grass and hotter, drier conditions in the region is prompting CAL FIRE to suspend all burn permits for outdoor residential burning within the State Responsibility Areas (SRA) of Alpine, Amador, El Dorado (west of Echo Summit), Sacramento, and San Joaquin counties. This suspension takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on June 10, 2024, and bans all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris such as branches and leaves.
