Calaveras, Eastern San Joaquin, Eastern Stanislaus and Tuolumne Counties Burn Permit Suspension Lifted

San Andreas, CA...Effective Wednesday, November 1, 2023, at 8 a.m. the burn permit suspension in Calaveras, Eastern San Joaquin, Eastern Stanislaus and Tuolumne Counties will be lifted. CAL FIRE Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit Chief Nick Casci is formally cancelling the burn permit suspension and advises that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days.




Agriculture burns must be inspected by CAL FIRE prior to burning until the end of the peak fire season. Inspections may be required for burns other than agriculture burns. This can be verified by contacting your local Air Quality Management District.

Cooler temperatures, higher humidity’s and the chance of winter weather have provided conditions that are conducive for burning within the parameters of a burn permit. Property owners and residents are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns, follow all guidelines provided, and maintain control of the fire at all times. Individuals can be held civilly and/or criminally liable for allowing a fire to escape their control and/or burn onto neighboring property.

Residents wishing to burn MUST verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning.
Calaveras County: (209) 754-6600
Tuolumne County: (209) 533-5598
San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties: (877) 429-2876

Pile Burning Requirements
• Only dry, natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings may be burned.
• The burning of trash, painted wood or other debris is not allowed.
• Do NOT burn on windy days.
• Piles should be no larger than four feet in diameter and in height. You can add to pile as it burns down.
• Clear a 10-foot diameter down to bare soil around your piles.
• Have a shovel and a water source nearby.
• An adult is required to be in attendance of the fire at all times.

Safe residential pile burning of forest residue by landowners is a crucial tool in reducing fire hazards. State, Federal and Local land management and fire agencies will also be utilizing this same window of opportunity to conduct prescribed burns aimed at improving forest health and resiliency on private and public lands.
For more information on burning, visit the CAL FIRE website at www.fire.ca.gov.

    Of all the ads above, the one that interests me the most is the Pickled Porch ad. I wonder if they are still having Trump Tuesday and if so, will Trump the Dawg be there?? Ruff, ruff.
