Amador-El Dorado Remains in Fire Season
Camino – CAL FIRE would like to remind homeowners in Amador and El Dorado Counties that, we remain in fire season. The Amador-El Dorado Unit has committed over 35 single resource personnel, 8 engines, 8 hand crews, two dozers, a Mobile Kitchen Unit (MKU) and Mobil Communications Center (MCC) to Southern California.
Even though we have a significant commitment of resource in the south, the Unit remains staffed with 10 engines, one dozer and one hand crew in preparation for warm,dry and possibly windy conditions predicted for the upcoming weekend in Northern
Due to the commitment of resources in Southern California and predicted warm and dry conditions it is not likely there will be a permissive burn day for some time. Burn permit are required for all backyard burning. Prior to burning call the following burn information lines for burn day status:
Amador County (209) 223-6246
El Dorado County (530) 621-5897.
