Camino - On Tuesday October 23rd, at 8 am, the Amador-El Dorado Unit (AEU) of CAL FIRE will rescind the burn restrictions due to the current and expected weather pattern which will allow homeowners to properly burn their debris piles that have accumulated over the summer. Unit Chief Kelly Keenan cautions "if the weather does a 180° turn and it heats up and dries out the vegetation, we could end up suspending burn permits again."
Door-yard burn permits, aka Residential Landscape Debris burn permits (LE-62A's), will still be required until the end of fire season has
been declared but burn permits can be obtained for FREE at most of your local fire stations. Daily the Amador-El Dorado Unit of CAL FIRE will determine "burn/no
burn day status", so please make sure you call the burn information line immediately prior to burning.
