The Cal-Fire Shasta-Trinity Unit will join the Tehama-Glenn Unit in suspending most burn permits starting Monday. After an unusually wet Winter there’s a massive amount of grass and other flashy fuels, and it’s drying quickly. In Tehama County all residential outdoor burning of landscape debris is banned, except for in Mineral, Child’s Meadows, Deer Creek and Mill Creek. Since the start of the year, Cal-Fire has already responded to nearly 2,000 wildfires around the state. Residents are urged to protect their homes by carefully clearing excessive vegetation from a 100 foot diameter, and doing so in the morning before conditions make it dangerous to use metal tools.
