Substantial rainfall in the over the last few days has prompted U.S. Forest Service officials to lift fire restrictions in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.
The restrictions will be lifted immediately and means that visitors in possession of a valid California campfire permit may, once again, have open campfires outside of designated campgrounds.
However, Visitors are still urged to practice fire safety, "Lifting these restrictions does not mean fire season is over. High fire danger could still occur, particularly if dry, windy conditions prevail," said Forest Fire Management Officer Ben Newburn.
The Klamath, Six Rivers and the Mendocino National Forest are lifting fire restrictions today as well.
