Officials have lifted fire restrictions on the Six Rivers National Forest due to the recent rainfall, higher humidity and cooler temperatures.

Visitors with a valid California campfire permit may once again have open campfires outside of designated campgrounds, according to a Six Rivers National Forest press release. The permit is free from any U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management or CAL FIRE office, according to the release. A permit can also be obtained online at www.preventwildfireca.org.

Though Six Rivers National Forest has lifted its fire restrictions, CAL FIRE’s Humboldt-Del Norte Ranger Unit continues to have a burn ban in place, according to the press release. For more information, call your local CAL FIRE office at 707-464-5526.

Six Rivers National Forest offices will be closed Monday in observance of Columbus Day. Regular business hours will resume at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

For more information on the lifted fire restrictions, call Forest Fire Prevention Officer Robert Rivelle at 707-498-1761.
