MORENO VALLEY, Calif. – The Bureau of Land Management is reducing fire restrictions to Stage I on December 17 for all BLM-managed public lands within the California Desert District, due to the recent rains, new growth in annual grasses, and milder temperatures. This change in fire restrictions will affect Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Mono and San Diego counties.

The recreational target shooting restrictions initiated April 30 on BLM-managed public lands within southern Kern, western Riverside, western San Bernardino, eastern Los Angles and San Diego counties are also terminated. The temporary fire closure order for the Whitewater Canyon in Riverside County has been terminated and public access to BLM-managed public lands is open. 

Specific descriptions of fire restrictions, a fire restrictions map, and a copy of the fire order is available at https://go.usa.gov/xPznq.

“Under the right conditions public lands still have potential for wildfires to spread rapidly and become dangerous,” said Beth Ransel, BLM California Desert District Manager. “We ask for your continued cooperation in helping to minimize the potential for wildfires on public lands.”

The public is reminded to follow these precautions:
1)  Make sure to have a five-foot circle cleared around a campfire.
2)  Be sure to have a shovel and plenty of water on hand and put the fire DEAD OUT, before leaving.
3)  Make sure cigarettes or cigars are put out when finished and disposed of properly.
4)  Park motor vehicles away from locations where exhaust could cause grass or other combustibles to ignite.

The public can find additional information about wildfire on CAL FIRE’s website at http://www.readyforwildfire.org/One-Less-Spark-Campaign/.

The BLM strives to be a good neighbor in the communities it serves, providing opportunities for economic growth with space for traditional uses such as ranching, mining and energy development, as well as hunting and fishing. For more information about wildfire prevention from the BLM, please contact the California Desert District Office 951-697-5200; Barstow Field Office, 760-252-6000; El Centro Field Office, 760-337-4400; Needles Field Office, 760-326-7000; Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office, 760-833-7100; or Ridgecrest Field Office, 760-384-5400.
