Mt. Diablo State Park Implements Burn Ban Until Further Notice

August 8, 2018 14:00 pm · 3 comments

After a discussion with CalFire officials about the shortage of local fire department staff, due to all the wildfires across the state, Mt. Diablo State Park will now implement a burn ban until further notice.

No fires of any kind are allowed; no wood fires, no compressed log fires, no charcoal cooking and please, no smoking.

You are allowed to cook with gas or propane camp stoves.

Smart move.

Agreed!!! In fact they should ban the stoves for now as well. Our fighters are spread way too thin.

You would have thought that would have been done a long time ago. Have they even noticed the two recent fires in the tinder dry foothills of Mt. Diablo?
