Fire Restrictions Lowered On Local Forests

Recent rainfall across Los Padres National Forest has led to rising fuel moisture levels, prompting officials to reduce fire restrictions on the forest effective immediately.

Under the reduced fire restrictions, campfires and charcoal barbeques will be allowed in all areas of Los Padres National Forest. A California Campfire Permit is required to build a campfire outside of a designated Campfire Use Site.

Visitors who construct wood or charcoal fires outside of designated Campfire Use Sites also must clear all flammable material for a minimum of five feet in all directions; have a shovel available for preparing and extinguishing the fire; have a responsible person in attendance at all times; and extinguish the fire with water, using the “drown, stir and feel” method.

Prohibitions on smoking and target shooting in Los Padres National Forest are also being lifted.

“As we move into the rainy season and reduce fire restrictions, it’s important to remember that fire can happen at any time of the year,” said Los Padres National Forest Supervisor Peggy Hernandez. “I strongly encourage all visitors to exercise caution while they are enjoying the forest.”

Please keep in mind the use of explosives and fireworks are prohibited in the National Forest areas.

Visitors are encouraged to call the local Ranger Station for more information on conditions and restrictions.
