The series of late-October atmospheric rivers brought ample moisture to the region for the seasonal CAL FIRE burn suspensions to be lifted in Placer and El Dorado Counties. CAL FIRE’s lifting of restrictions indicates the end of our local fire season.
The Fire Chief has lifted seasonal fire restrictions for Meeks Bay and North Tahoe Fire Protection Districts. Homeowners are permitted to use properly screened, wood-burning fire pits and chimeneas, and charcoal barbecues, throughout the cold weather months unless high winds/red flag weather conditions prohibit safe use.
(The outdoor burning of wood and charcoal is never permitted at Short-Term Rentals.)
Those possessing current and valid residential burn permits may resume residential burning on permissible burn days. Read more here.
