Thanks to the capriciousness of Mother Nature--the un-seasonal cool weather and rains in Northern California--the usual tinder-dry, wildfire-prone wild lands do not represent the fire danger usually associated with Fall.
This has prompted the BLM to lift all fire restrictions that have been in place since mid-summer. Specifically, campfires are again permitted outside of developed campgrounds, but you must still get a free fire permit. Restrictions on smoking and internal combustion engines off-road and on trails have also been lifted.
These lifted restrictions apply to the Arcata and Redding field offices in Humboldt, Mendocino, Del Norte, Trinity, Siskiyou, Shasta, Butte, and Tehama counties.
