All burning suspended

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), Madera-Mariposa-Merced Unit (MMU)  has announced as of Tuesday June 11, 2013 all burning has been suspended in the State Responsibility Area (SRA) of Mariposa County.

The burn suspension is necessary due to the lack of rainfall and higher than normal temperatures the area has experienced. California lends itself to severe wildfire conditions year round with its unique climate and topography, but this year fire fighters are experiencing historic low fuel moistures, and have moved into peak fire season condition earlier than predicted. The chance of large and damaging fires exists throughout California.
