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.
