Burn Ban Still in Effect in Sierra County


The Sierra County Sheriff’s Office reminds the county that there continues to be a burn ban despite the wetting rains this week. Burn pile permits have been suspended since May and All open fires are still prohibited with a few exceptions. Campfires within designated campgrounds with a host are allowed. Any Campfires outside designated campgrounds are not on both public and private lands. Burning will not resume until fire weather conditions improve, and CalFIRE ends the fire season.
