Fire restrictions lifted in national forest

Due to recent rainfall, cooler temperatures and higher humidity, federal officials lifted fire restrictions in the Six Rivers National Forest this week.

This means that forest visitors can once again have open campfires outside of designated campgrounds, provided they are in possession of a valid California campfire permit, which is free from any Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management or California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) office.

“Lifting these restrictions does not mean fire season is over. High fire danger could still occur particularly if windy conditions prevail,” said Deputy Forest Supervisor Merv George in a press release. George wants to encourage everyone to be careful with fire while visiting the national forest.
