Zone 2: Permissive Burn Day

Zone 3: Permissive Burn Day

Please refer to your burn permit for approved burn hours and restrictions. 

As of May 16th, the Shasta-Trinity CAL FIRE Unit has suspended all burning in Eastern Trinity County.  CAL FIRE may issue special permits as necessary to protect public health and safety. Please contact the nearest CAL FIRE Office for further information. Residents in Western Trinity, Humboldt, and Del Norte County who have a Non-Standard Burn Permit in State Responsibility Areas must contact their nearest CAL FIRE office to obtain an additional CAL FIRE LE-5 burn permit.  Standard Burn Permit holders are exempt from this requirement. 

This page will not be updated over the weekend or on holidays. Please call (866) BURNDAY or (866) 287-6329 for status information.

 Burn permit holders can only burn on permissive burn days as determined for the North Coast area.

The public must call the District's Burn Day Status line each day at (866) BURNDAY or (866) 287-6329 to determine whether burning is allowed in each of the three burn zones designated within the District.

The District bases its determination on the findings of CARB's Meteorological Branch, which specifies each day of the year as a Permissive Burn Day, or a No-Burn Day for each air basin or other specified area under Title 17, California Code of Regulations. Burn day decisions are driven by air quality estimates of air quality for the next day (the decisions are made the afternoon before they are effective) and by weather conditions.
