TCU Suspends Outdoor Burning

San Andreas, CA...Monday, June 2, 2014 at 8:00 AM, the Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) will suspend outdoor burning within State Responsibility Areas of Tuolumne County, Calaveras County, Eastern Stanislaus County and Eastern San Joaquin County. These restrictions will remain in effect until further notice....

Statewide, California has experienced record-breaking low rainfall, low humidity, and low fuel moisture levels, along with higher than normal temperatures and increased fire activity. CAL FIRE began its transition to fire season months earlier than normal this year.

Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit Chief Josh White emphasizes the suspension of outdoor burning is essential for the safety of our communities, and encourages the public to continue to create defensible space around structures. Consider alternatives to outdoor burning when creating defensible space, such as chipping or hauling debris to green waste sites.

Visit or your nearest CAL FIRE facility for more information on how to prepare for and prevent wildfires.

About time and Calaveras should be included. Cal Fire needs some incentive to analyze fire causes more thoroughly and focus on prevention like Oregon is doing. When will they stop burning in Calaveras?... After a bunch of burn pile fires? When will they start telling the public the truth about logging related fire causes? More to come on that and what we tax payers have paid for those fires.

Burning should be suspended for good in any season at any time. It's one of the worst things ever!
