Hot and windy weather drives Cal Fire to put burn season on hold

San Luis Obispo County/Cal Fire on Monday suspended all burning, including agricultural, forest management, hazard abatement and other industrial-type burning, until further notice because of an increase this week in winds and unseasonably hot weather.

Campfires within organized campgrounds or on private property are allowed if the campfire is maintained to prevent it from spreading to wild-land vegetation, according to a news release.

Cal Fire will staff seven engines with additional personnel starting Tuesday and intends to provide additional resources and staff while fire danger is increased by the predicted warm weather.
