BLM Lifting Fire Restrictions for Lands Managed by Eagle Lake, Applegate Field Offices

With the return of cooler weather and reduced wildfire dangers, the Bureau of Land Management will rescinded fire restrictions on public lands managed by the Eagle Lake and Applegate field offices in Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Sierra, eastern Shasta and eastern Siskiyou counties in California and in Washoe County, Nevada.

Restrictions will be lifted this Friday, September 29th.

Easing of restrictions means that public land visitors can again use campfires outside of developed campgrounds and posted recreation sites. Campfire permits are required.

Permits are available at the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2550 Riverside Drive, in Susanville, the Applegate Field Office, 708 West 12th Street, in Alturas and the Surprise Field Station, 602 Cressler Street, in Cedarville.

“Even though we have cooler weather, people still need to be careful with fire,” said BLM Applegate Field Manager Craig Drake. “Fires should never be used on windy days, and it is imperative that campers fully extinguish campfires before leaving a campsite.”
