November 20, 2023 - Yosemite National Park officials report Fire Season in Yosemite National Park is declared over once a season-ending event (defined as two or more inches of precipitation accumulation after October 1) has occurred. With the recent rain and snow, the threshold has been reached. Fire danger has been consistently "Low" over the past several days and more precipitation is in the forecast. Fire season has been declared over as of November 19, 2023.
The end of fire season has made residential pile burning permissible. Residential pile burning is important for reducing fire hazards and can only be conducted on permissible burn days. Property owners and residents must follow all burning guidelines. For a step-by-step guide to safe pile burning, please reference the attachment.
Thank you for a safe 2023 fire season and for doing your part to reduce hazard fuels around your building and properties.
