This message concerning open burning is updated at 9:15 a.m. daily. Please read the entire message.

Today is a permissive-burn day for all types of burning in all areas of Shasta County. For residential burning within the city limits or fire districts of Redding, Shasta Lake, Buckeye, Fall River Mills, or Cottonwood, you must obtain a burn permit from your local fire department. If you reside within the Anderson Fire Protection District, you do not need a permit. All burning must be conducted on a Permissive-Burn day and within allowed burn hours.

If you are planning on conducting agricultural burning, prescribed burning, land clearing burning for commercial or residential development, fire hazard reduction burning for brush clearance, or mechanized burner use, you must obtain the proper permit and pay the applicable district permit fees to the Shasta County Air Quality Management District.

Residential burning may include dry vegetation only. It is illegal to burn stumps or material containing construction debris, lumber, petroleum products, plastics, and other smoke-producing materials. Burn piles must not contain excessive dirt. It is also illegal to use a burn barrel or burn paper and cardboard in all areas of Shasta County except for Big Bend, Castella, Old Station, Platina, and Whiskeytown.

Please notify the Shasta County Air Quality Management District on the day of the agricultural burn with the number of acres or tons burned by calling 225-5674 or 800-528-2850.
