As wildfires rage in parts of California to the north and
south, the Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of CalFire is restricting burn hours.
Starting Monday, outdoor burning is permitted only between 7 p.m. and 8 a.m., the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said in a news release Friday. Cooler temperatures and higher humidity during those hours make for safer burning conditions.
Fires are only allowed on permissive burn days, and permits must be obtained.
More information is available at the following: Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties, (877) 429-2876; Tuolumne County, (209) 533-5598; and Calaveras County, (209) 754-6600.
