Beginning Tuesday, the Bureau of Land Management will implement fire restrictions for public lands managed by its Arcata Field Office in Del Norte, Humboldt, Trinity, and Mendocino counties in California, according to a press release.

The seasonal fire restrictions are in addition to the BLM’s year-round statewide fire prevention order and will remain in effect until further notice.

“Recognizing that most wildfires in California are human-caused, these fire restrictions are an important way that we can help protect public lands and nearby communities from wildfire,” said BLM Northern California District Manager Dereck Wilson.

“The National Interagency Fire Center predicts the likelihood for large fires will be above normal this summer due to prolonged drought conditions, and it is critical that we do all we can to prevent wildfires,” he added.

Under fire restrictions, there will be no campfires and barbecues allowed—except within established campfire rings and barbecue grills in developed campgrounds and recreation sites.

However, portable stoves and lanterns using gas, jellied petroleum, or pressurized liquid fuel are allowed outside of campgrounds and recreation sites, including the Lost Coast Trail, with a valid California campfire permit.

The restrictions also include no motor vehicles or internal combustion engines off established roads or trails.

Visitors are advised to be extremely careful with campfires. Free campfire permits are available online at http://www.preventwildfireca.org/Campfire-Permit and at BLM, Forest Service and CAL FIRE offices.

For more information, telephone the Arcata Field Office, 707-825-2300.
