2012 Fire restrictions in effect

Release Date: 06/11/12
Contacts: Jeff Fontana , (530)252-5322
News Release No. CC-12-59

BLM Mother Lode Office Announces Fire Restrictions

Effective June 11, 2012, the Bureau of Land Management is implementing fire restrictions on all BLM-managed public lands within the Mother Lode Field Office boundary. This includes BLM-managed public lands in Nevada, Yuba, Placer, El Dorado, Amador, Sacramento, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Stanislaus, Sutter, and Mariposa counties, a total of about 230,000 acres. The fire restrictions will remain in effect until further notice.

These restrictions prohibit all open fires on public lands because of extremely dry conditions, according to Gerald Martinez, Fire Management Officer. “With the recent high temperatures, fuels are extremely dry,” he said.

Campers are urged to be familiar with special limitations prior to visiting any public lands in these counties. A valid California campfire permit is required for all fires. Campfire permits are available free of charge at any BLM, Forest Service, or California Department of Forestry Office, but campers need to be aware of restrictions in the area they are visiting.

The following restrictions apply:

No open fires except in designated campgrounds, open fire stoves, except lanterns and portable stoves using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel.
No welding or use of any torch with an open flame, except by special permit.
No use of explosives, except by special permit.
No operating internal combustion engines, except on maintained roads.
No firing tracers or incendiary devices capable of starting a fire.
No fireworks.

Violations are punishable by fines up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment for up to one year in jail. For additional information contact BLM’s Mother Lode Field Office at (916) 941-3101.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been lax in checking this year.

Even if we can technically have a fire remember that it is getting dry!

Keep it small and under control and have a shovel and water nearby just in case.

Fire Restrictions Are Not In Effect

Campfire Restrictions are not in effect. Open fires and charcoal/BBQ grills are permitted outside of developed campgrounds if you have a valid California Campfire Permit.

Dooryard and industrial burn permits on private lands are governed by state law.

Contractors working on projects on NF lands are governed by the regulations in their contract or permit.
