CalFire press release re:Fire Danger Exists Despite Cooler Weather

Fire Danger Exists Despite Cooler Weather

San Andreas – The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit, is reminding all residents the burn suspension is still in effect, until further notice.  Fire danger continues to remain above average across the Central Sierras.  Even though there is rain in the forecast for the weekend, the minimal expected precipitation followed by the predicted north winds is not conducive to safe burning operations.

CAL FIRE Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit will continue to monitor the weather and fuel conditions, and will lift the burn suspension when conditions allow for safe burning.
