You MUST verify that it is a permissive burn day before you begin to burn. You can call (530)274-7928 or visit Air Quality to check the burn day status.

Safe Pile Burning Recommendations 

  • Only dry, natural vegetative material may be burned.
  • The burning of trash, painted wood or other debris is not allowed.
  • Do NOT burn on windy days.
  • Piles should be no larger than four (4) feet in diameter and in height. You can add to your pile as it burns down.
  • Clear a 10-foot diameter down to bare soil around your piles.
  • Always have a shovel and a water source nearby.
  • An adult is required to be in attendance of the fire at all times.

If your fire is no longer in your control, dial 9-1-1 immediately.
