    The burn permit suspension in counties immediately affected by the North Bay wildfires will be lifted Tuesday, Cal Fire said Saturday.

    Effective Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 8 a.m., the burn permit suspension in Sonoma, Lake, Napa, Solano, Yolo and Colusa counties will be lifted, Cal Fire announced.

    According to Cal Fire, those who possess current, valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days starting Tuesday. However, they must verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning, the agency noted.

    Also, Cal Fire must inspect any burns larger than 4-foot-by-4-foot piles prior to burning until the end of the fire season, according to the agency.

    To verify whether it is a permissive burn day, and for any other questions regarding burning vegetation, residents of the Northern Sonoma County Air Pollution Control District may call 707-433-5911.

    Those who live in the Lake County Air Quality Management District may call 707-263-7000. Residents of the Napa County Air Pollution District may call 415-749-5000, according to Cal Fire.

    Residents of the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District may call 530-757-3650, and those who live in the Colusa County Air Pollution Control District may call 530-458-0590, Cal Fire said.
