PARADISE, Calif. - The town of Paradise lifted its burn ban on Friday.

With the recent rain, town leaders said wildfire risk is significantly lower and residential burning will help remove vegetation waste created by the Camp Fire.

The Paradise Fire Chief will allow burning starting Friday, Nov. 29, through May 1, 2020.

The regular burn period runs March, April, and May, with a provisional burn period in the fall, the town said. 

However, you must have a valid permit to burn. Even with a valid permit, citizens must contact Butte County Air Quality Management District to ensure that it is a permissible burn day.

People can also buy a permit in person at the Paradise Fire Department at 767 Birch Street, permits are $25 each with cash or check only.
