Fire Restrictions Lifted in Eastern Sierras


Officials from the Inyo National Forest and Bishop Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management announced today that Eastern Sierra fire restrictions put into place June 20 will be rescinded beginning Friday, Sept. 14. 

Recent seasonal changes in the fuel moisture, combined with increased humidity and cooler night time temperatures, have prompted the lifting of fire restrictions throughout the Inyo National Forest and the Bishop Field Office.

Although the land management agencies are lifting the fire restrictions, they would like to remind the public when recreating outdoors to continue to use caution to decrease the chance of human-caused fires and avoid resource and property damage.

For further information please call Debra Hein, Inyo National Forest and BLM Bishop Field Office, at (760) 872-5057.
