Burn permits are now available online for residents of Shasta County.

Shasta is one of the first counties offering the online service.

And although permits are not currently required, the new service will present residents with a convenient alternative to obtaining one when the requirements resume.

“There’s a huge advantage just from the convenience factor for the resident alone to be able to do this at home,” Cal Fire public information officer Cheryl Buliavac said. “There’s a very short video that’s required to view and then print it and have it right there at their disposal, not to have to travel to a fire station and obtain it like they have.”

Residents will still have to apply in-office for larger burning projects.

Despite not currently needing a permit, Cal Fire still warns residents to exercise caution when burning outdoors.
