Cal-Fire SHU Lifts Burn Permit Requirement Effective Monday

Burn permits are no longer required in the area under the protection of the Shasta-Trinity Unit of Cal-Fire. Beginning Monday, no permits will be required for residential burning. People still need to follow the guidelines, learn the rules and be sure it’s a burn day before lighting up their piles. The Tehama-Glenn Unit of Cal-Fire also announced Monday that burn permits are no longer needed. The City of Redding is allowing burn piles through next May, and permits are required.
