Burn Ban Starts Monday in Siskiyou County

The California Dept. of Forestry's Siskiyou Unit, based in Yreka, will suspend "dooryard burning permits" starting Monday, June 17. Recent fire activity and hot weather prompted the issuance of the proclamation.

Campfires and ceremonial fires are still allowed on private property with the landowner's permission.

For more information, contact CalFire's Siskiyou Unit at (530) 842-3516.
