Burn restrictions lifted in AEU

From page A3 | November 01, 2013 |

Camino – On Friday, Nov. 1 at 8 a.m., the Amador-El Dorado Unit of Cal Fire will rescind the burn restrictions due to the current and expected weather pattern which will allow homeowners to properly burn their debris piles that have accumulated over the summer. Unit Chief Kelly Keenan cautions, “if the weather does a 180-degree turn and it heats up and dries out the vegetation, we could end up suspending burn permits again.”

Door-yard burn permits, also known as Residential Landscape Debris burn permits (LE-62A’s), will still be required until the end of fire season has been declared, but burn permits can be obtained for free at most of your local fire stations. Daily AEU will determine “burn/no burn day status,” so please make sure you call the burn information line immediately prior to burning.

• Alpine County: 760-872-8211
• Amador County: 209-223-6246
• El Dorado County Burn Day Line (West Slope): 530-621-5897
• Sacramento County: 916-874-4800

Safety tips for burning:

• Make sure your pile(s) are no larger than four feet by four feet in size.
• Scrape a 10-foot-wide ring around each debris pile down to bare dirt.
• Have a shovel and water supply (charged hose) close by to use in the event your fire escapes from the pile
• Make sure an adult is in attendance until the pile is completely extinguished.

For additional information on burning safely, defensible space and other fire and life safety topics, please visit the Cal Fire Website at fire.ca.gov.
