BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - If you are looking to burn in Butte County anytime soon, you will need a burn permit.

Cal Fire said all those living in the unincorporated areas of the county, and Biggs and Gridley, will be required to have a burn permit beginning Friday, May 1 to burn dooryard debris.

Due to travel and contact restrictions brought on by the coronavirus, Cal Fire is asking you to get your free burn permits online, as opposed to coming into a local station. Those permits can be found HERE.

Those living in Paradise who want to burn can do so on permissive burn days with a burn permit through May 31.

For Paradise burning regulations and to get a permit, you can find one HERE.

"Pile burning is an effective tool for removing dead and down vegetation from your property," said Butte Unit Chief David Hawks. "Eliminating fire fuel is a critical part of every home's Defensible Space strategy."

It was nice to receive some rain and mountain snow around northern California late Sunday and early Monday. Thankfully a change to our overall weather pattern is underway, and many more chances of rain are coming!
