Growing fire danger due to continued drought and hotter, drier conditions in the region prompted Cal Fire to suspend all burning permits for outdoor residential burning in Alpine, Amador, El Dorado counties , Sacramento and San Joaquin, officials announced last week.

The suspension takes effect at midnight on Monday, May 23 and prohibits all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris such as branches and leaves.

“We are experiencing drought conditions and severe fire-related weather much earlier than usual for this time of year,” said Mike Blankenheim, Cal Fire Amador-El Dorado Unit Chief. “Although debris burning is useful in reducing flammable vegetation, conditions in the Amador-El Dorado unit have reached the point where debris burning poses an unacceptable risk of starting a wildfire.”

Tips for preparing homes and belongings:

• Clear all dead or dying vegetation within 100 feet around all structures.

• Landscape with fire-resistant plants and non-flammable ground cover.

• Find other ways to dispose of landscape debris, such as crushing it or transporting it to a biomass energy or green waste facility.
