BLM lifts fire restrictions

Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012 -- Following recent rainy weather, the Bureau of Land Management’s Mother Lode Field Office has lifted emergency fire restrictions on all BLM-managed public lands within its boundary effective today. This includes BLM-managed public lands in Nevada, Yuba, Placer, El Dorado, Amador, Sacramento, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Stanislaus, Sutter and Mariposa Counties, a total of about 230,000 acres.

There is no longer a need for emergency restrictions, according to Jerry Martinez, BLM fire management officer. However, some requirements such as campfire permits remain in place. Campfire permits and additional information is available at the BLM Mother Lode Field Office, 5152 Hillsdale Circle, El Dorado Hills.

“As always, we’re asking the public to be careful with fire on public lands even though the danger has decreased,” he said.

For additional information, contact BLM's Folsom Field Office at (916) 941-3101.
