Burn Permits Required

   CalFire has just issued a press release indicating that as of Thursday, May 1, 2014 the Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) will require burn permits for any outdoor burning within the State Responsibility Areas (the $150 you pay per home) of Tuolumne County, Calaveras County, Eastern Stanislaus County and Eastern San Joaquin County.

   Due to the exceptionally dry conditions, burning will be limited to the hours between 7 PM and 8 AM.  The usual rules apply as to size of piles and safety.
