NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – The burn permit suspension in Shasta and eastern Trinity counties will be lifted on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 8 a.m., CAL FIRE said.

Eastern Trinity County is defined as that area of Trinity County within the Shasta-Trinity Administrative Unit Boundary.

CAL FIRE Shasta-Trinity Unit Chief Bret Gouvea is canceling the burn permit suspension and advises that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days, said CAL FIRE in a news release. CAL FIRE burn permits will be required until the end of the fire season.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, CAL FIRE is asking residents to utilize the online burn permitting process. Residents wishing to burn must verify it is a permissive burn day before burning. Shasta County burn day information may be obtained online or by calling the Shasta County AQMD at 530-224-8777. For eastern Trinity County call 707-443-3093 or click here.

  • Only dry, natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles, and tree trimmings may be burned.
  • The burning of trash, painted wood, or other debris is not allowed.
  • Do NOT burn on windy days.
  • Piles should be no larger than four feet in diameter and in height. You can add to the pile as it burns down.
  • Clear a 10-foot diameter down to bare soil around your piles.
  • Have a shovel and a water source nearby.
