California’s wildfire season is not yet over. In the interest of the safety of firefighters and visitors to the national forests in the Pacific Southwest Region, fire restrictions are being kept in place to prevent further fires from being started and overtaxing the resources of those fighting existing wildfires.
The Regional Emergency Fire restrictions order is effective through October 22 and maintains the same level of restrictions that are in effect right now.
Propane and gas stove use are now permitted in developed recreation sites in National Forests in California. Developed recreation sites are defined as areas that have been improved or developed for recreation such as campgrounds and day use sites.
No fires, including camp stoves, are permitted while dispersed camping.
