BLM lifts fire restrictions for most lands

BLM lifts fire restrictions for most lands

The Bureau of Land Management has lifted fire restrictions on public lands managed by the Mother Lode Field Office in Nevada, Yuba, Placer, El Dorado, Amador, Sacramento, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Stanislaus and Sutter counties, about 160,000 acres in all. Restrictions remain in effect in Mariposa County until further notice.

The standard fire use regulations remain in effect. Camp fires are allowed outside developed and/or dispersed recreation areas with a valid California Campfire Permit.

Wildfire danger may still exist through the winter, so visitors are reminded to continue to stay fire-safe when visiting BLM public lands.

For information on the fire restrictions, contact the Bureau of Land Management Mother Lode Field Office at 916-941-3101.
