Nevada City… Due to continued hot, dry, and windy weather, fire restrictions in the Tahoe National Forest (TNF) will be increased beginning Monday, July 2, 2007, announced Judie Tartaglia, Deputy Forest Supervisor. “The fire near South Lake Tahoe is a good example of the explosive fire conditions this year. In making the decision to increase fire restrictions, we have tried to find a balance between minimizing the risk of human-caused fires and reducing the impacts for the recreating public and contractors. We need everyone to be especially vigilant when it comes to fire safety,” stated Tartaglia. The restrictions will affect several activities:

* Fireworks – Absolutely no fireworks are permitted in the National Forest.
* Campfires – Only permitted in those campgrounds that have water systems, metal campfire rings, fire engine accessibility and regular patrols by campground hosts. Visitors can contact any TNF office for a list of campgrounds where campfires are permitted.
* Portable Stoves and Lanterns - Permitted in all campgrounds and the backcountry with a valid campfire permit.
* Woodcutting –.Check the woodcutting hotlines each day to determine if chainsaws are permitted.
* Off-Highway Vehicle Use – Only permitted on designated roads; the Prosser Pit area near Truckee; and the Sugar Pine OHV area north of Foresthill. (Not permitted on trails other than the areas mentioned.)
* Smoking – Limited to vehicles, buildings, and in a 3-foot cleared area.
* Contract/Permittee Operations – Any operation or permittee that uses internal combustion engines or fire, must have an approved fire plan.

For More Information - Contact any Tahoe National Forest office in Camptonville (530) 288-3231, Foresthill (530) 367-2224, Nevada City (530) 265-4531, Sierraville (530) 994-3401 or Truckee (530) 587-3558 or check out the webpage at www.fs.fed.us/r5/tahoe.
