The Inyo National Forest announces that fire restrictions put into place for the forest earlier this summer will be rescinded on Tuesday, November 17. Recent rain and snow, combined with increased humidity, shorter days, and cooler nighttime temperatures have prompted the forest to lift the fire restrictions.

Taro Pusina, Fire Management Officer for the Inyo National Forest, reminds the public to keep fire safety in mind to avoid resource and property damage. “With shorter days, cooler weather and overall reduced fire danger, Inyo National Forest is lifting fire restrictions. We urge the visitors and residents to use common sense and exercise caution when recreating outdoors in order to minimize the chance of unwanted, human-caused fires in what has been a long and difficult fire season,” said Pusina.

A campfire permit is still required for those camping outside of developed campgrounds and can be obtained online at https://www.readyforwildfire.org/permits/campfire-permit/,
