Fire Restrictions On The Sierra National Forest

A message from the US Forest Service –

SIERRA NATIONAL FOREST – Fire season came early this year and it’s not over. The Fire Danger condition is currently “High.”

Given current fire activity throughout California and nationally, please help spread the word about Fire Restrictions on the Sierra National Forest and help keep the public safe from wildfire.

Reduced snow pack, rainfall – combined with unseasonably high temperatures, dead and downed fuels and new vegetation growth, means everything is in place for wildfire. The only thing missing is a spark

We hope that the public will enjoy the numerous locations located on the Sierra National Forest over this Labor Day weekend.

Visitors to the Sierra National Forest are reminded that temporary fire restrictions are in place. All visitors are asked to reference Forest Order 15-13-08 to see which campgrounds allow campfires. The Forest Order can be found on the Sierra National Forest web site at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/sierra/. Keep informed about forest news on Twitter: @Sierra_nf

For more information, please contact one of our Forest Service offices: North Fork (559) 877-2218, Prather (559) 855-5355, or Clovis (559) 297-0706.
