Burn ban lifted

The burn pile suspension for Nevada, Yuba and Placer counties has been lifted starting today, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit announced Thursday.

Residents still must be careful when burning and could be held liable for firefighting costs if a burn gets out of control, CDF Unit Chief Brad Harris said.

Burning will be allowed on permissive burn days from 5 p.m. through midnight with a valid burn permit.

Permits can be obtained at CDF fire stations free of charge. To find out when are permissive burn days, call 274-7928.
