Burn ban in place
Burning debris in the unincorporated areas of Tehama County and in Corning has been suspended as of Friday, and will continue through the end of the fire season, fire officials announced.
The burn ban includes all areas of Tehama County except for Mineral, Childs Meadows, Deer Creek, and Mill Creek. The burn ban in these areas goes into effect July 1.
Check with local fire officials for burning restrictions in the Capay Fire District, Corning and Red Bluff.
Agricultural, forest management, and other industrial type burning may proceed if an authorized fire official inspects the area and issues a special permit.
Check with Air Pollution Control to verify if it is a legal burn day prior to starting any burn.
Campfires will be allowed in designated campgrounds with permission of the jurisdictional authority and with a valid campfire permit.
CalFire advises homeowners they can help protect their homes and families, as well as firefighters, by providing 100 feet of defensible space around all structures.
