'Tis the Season to Check Before You Burn
This season's mandatory Check Before You Burn program in Sacramento County and the cities of Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova and Sacramento begins on November 1 and goes through February, along with Yolo and Solano counties voluntary Don't Light Tonight program.

The Check Before You Burn law requires you to find out if it's legal to burn in your indoor or outdoor fireplace, wood stove, firepit or chiminea that burns wood, pellets, manufactured logs or any other solid fuel. Burning will be restricted or prohibited on days when air pollution is forecast to be high.
