CAL FIRE Columbia Hill Station 42 personnel removed dead pine trees from their compound this year.  The trees posed a direct threat to falling on the Station but were safely felled, bucked, and split by hand into firewood.  Since the station has no need for firewood, the wood was donated to North San Juan Fire Protection District to make available for the community this winter.  In total, about 7 cords have been given to NSJ Fire to be given to those in need of a few days of heat this winter while a regular supply is established.  CAL FIRE hopes it will bring some comfort to those in need this Holiday season.  For residents of the greater North San Juan area that have a need for a small amount of wood, please call Tom Browning at 530-802-4050.

Burning is allowed by BURN PERMIT only.  Burn Permits can be obtained online Here
