When can I burn?

Burning is allowed only on a permissive burn day and in those areas of Placer County that allow burning.

  • For the Greater Auburn Area (within 12 miles) (or for cell phones) call 530-889-6868.
  • All other areas of Placer County (land lines only) call 800-998-2876 toll-free.
  • The Air District has established a policy in making some holidays during the burn season no burn days in Placer County.

On days when the fire danger is increased, the Air District works very closely with local fire officials to include their information in the burn day message. For more information, contact the Placer County Air Pollution Control District at 530-745-2330.
