Clovis (October 9, 2009)..."With fall storms bringing precipitation and snow to higher elevations, the Sierra National Forest is lifting all fire restrictions", stated Forest Supervisor Ed Cole. "Visitors can now have open flame fires in all areas of the Forest", added Cole.

Forest Visitors will still need to obtain a campfire permit if they are camping outside of designated campgrounds and follow all guidelines when having open flame fires. Woodcutting areas are still open. Please continue to contact 24-hour information line at 559-346-1525 for information regarding any daily restrictions. The recording is revised daily at 5:00 pm. Woodcutting will close for the season on November 30, 2009.

Unsettled weather is predicted over the next couple of weeks and visitors are cautioned to carry chains and be prepared for quickly changing weather at anytime.
