Burn permits suspended during fire season
–Due to the extreme danger of destruction by fire to life, improved property, or natural resources caused by critical fire weather and acute dryness of vegetation; and/or fire suppression forces being heavily committed to controlling fires; and, the Director of the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has suspended, except within the incorporated cities, the privileges of burning by permit and other uses of open fire in the geographic area described as: All state-responsibility area lands within the County of San Luis Obispo.
Campfires within organized campgrounds or on private property that are otherwise permitted will be allowed if the campfire is maintained in such a manner as to prevent its spread to the wildland.
In accordance with section of the public resources code, state rangers or other authorized agents of the Director of Forestry and Fire Protection may issue restricted temporary burning permits whenever it can be shown that burning or use of open fire is essential for reasons of public health, safety, or welfare.
This order shall become effective at 8 p.m. on June 19, and remain in effect until formally terminated.
