Fire Restrictions Lifted on Public Lands Managed by BLM Redding Field Office


The Bureau of Land Management has announced that restrictions on outdoor use of fire have been lifted for BLM-managed public lands in Butte, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama and Trinity counties. 

Easing of restrictions means that campfires can again be used outside of developed campgrounds.  Campfire permits are required. Restrictions on use of internal combustion engines, including chainsaws, also will be lifted.

Those interested in cutting firewood on BLM-managed lands managed by the Redding Field Office should contact BLM Forester Walter Herzog at 530-224-2151.

Target shooting is now allowed from a half hour before sunrise to sunset. 

Herzog said that cool fall weather has reduced fire dangers, but conditions are still dry and people still must use extreme caution with fire.  He cautioned against using fires on windy days, and reminded campers to completely extinguish campfires before breaking camp.
