Lassen National Forest to lift fire restrictions Oct. 20

Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 — Changing conditions are prompting Lassen National Forest officials to lift fire restrictions as of Monday, Oct. 20.

This means forest visitors may once again have campfires outside of developed campgrounds and recreation sites, although campfire permits are still required. Fire officials remind forest visitors to keep campfires small and be sure they are dead out and cold to the touch before leaving camp.

The lifting of restrictions also rescinds the “hoot owl” provision, which means chainsaws no longer have a 1 p.m. shutdown time and may now be used all day on Lassen National Forest lands. Woodcutters must have valid woodcutting permits, and their chainsaws must be equipped with spark arresters.
