Humboldt Bay Fire announces that beginning Monday, July 16th, “Residential” burn permits will be suspended within its boundaries, including the City of Eureka and Humboldt Fire District #1.  This suspension is concurrent with Cal Fire’s and the North Coast Air Quality Management suspension requirements.

The suspension typically continues until sometime in October, depending on weather, wildfire and available fire suppression resources.

This burn suspension is subject to CAL FIRE regulation and is put in place to address the seasonal menace of wildfire and its potential to destroy life and property. 

The burning suspension will include all of the area within Humboldt Bay Fire’s boundaries including within the Eureka city limits.
