In an area like Twain Harte which is densely populated by large trees, it is especially important to uphold no burn days. I was just in Arizona last week and a wildfire started because a man started a campfire in an area where burning wasn’t allowed and didn’t wash out the fire properly. It is against the law to burn on a no burn day.
State law does not allow the use of burn barrels. Some landowners and businesses are required to have a burn permit. You may want to call to make sure you do not need a permit. Permits are available at multiple locations. The closest one for Twain Harte is Twain Harte FFS, 22978 Meadow Drive, Twain Harte. They are available during business hours Monday through Friday. Other locations include: Cal Fire Headquarters, 785 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas; Station 51, 1950 Hillsdale Drive, Mono Village; Station 76, 18249 4th Ave., Jamestown; Blanchard FFS, 2990 Highway 132, La Grange.
