How do I find out if its a burn day?

The Air District maintains a daily burn day message system that has a specific message for Granite Bay residents. Burning is allowed only on a permissive burn day.

  • 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-BURN (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.
