Pile Burning Season Ends Sunday In The Valley

Burn 'em if you got 'em. Pile burning season will end on Sunday. After that nobody should be burning piles below an elevation of one thousand feet. For property owners above a thousand feet, a permit is required by Cal-Fire.  City of Redding burn permits will no longer be valid, and a burn ban will also be in effect for the cities of Shasta Lake and Anderson. Now is the time for people to help firefighters save their homes by cleaning up property and clearing dry weeds from one hundred feet around structures. Work needs to be done carefully, though, especially when using metal-bladed tools.
