Fire restrictions set for Sequoia National Forest and Monument

Beginning June 26, no campfires will be allowed anywhere on the forest. Stoves and lanterns with shut-off valves that use gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel will be allowed only in authorized campsites if the operator possesses a valid California Campfire PermitA list of these authorized locations is available online here. The list includes most campsites, the Jennie Lakes Wilderness, the Golden Trout Wilderness, and the Dome Land Wilderness. Campfire permits and a list of areas allowing stoves on the Sequoia National Forest may also be obtained at Forest Service visitor information desks. When using a stove, remember to clear all flammable material five feet in all directions from the stove, have a shovel available, and ensure that a responsible person attends the stove at all times when in use.

Operating an internal combustion engine outside properly designated roads or trails, welding, and using explosives will all be strictly prohibited during these increased restrictions. If riding a motorized vehicle on trails, ensure your engine is tuned, operating properly, and has an approved spark arrester. Smoking will only be allowed in enclosed vehicles and within authorized recreation sites.

Brent Skaggs, Forest Fire Management Officer, stated, “Forest fuel moisture is at a level we usually don’t see until much later in the summer, and it will take everyone’s diligence to prevent wildfires.”

These restrictions will remain in place until the end of the fire season, normally in late autumn.   Anyone causing a wildfire could be liable for all costs associated with suppressing the fire. Visitors to Forest Service and adjacent BLM and Park Service lands need to carefully follow each agency’s current fire restrictions.  If you spot a fire, call 911.
