California's increased fire activity, coupled with the current weather forecast for continued heightened fire danger, prompted CAL FIRE on Wednesday to suspend all burning permits and open fire within the State Responsibility Area of California. The burn ban suspends all residential burn permits, forest management, hazard abatement, and other industrial-type permitted burning within the 31 million acres of State Responsibility Area. Campfires within organized campgrounds or on private property are allowed if they are in a designated campfire site that prevents fire from spreading outside the site.
