During the 2007 Fire Season, 303 vegetation fires burned 1,874 acres with a total of a little over 1.8 million dollars in damages. Total fires to date for 2007 including: vegetation, vehicle, structures and personal property is 647 with 1,920 total acres burned. Total year to date dollar damage is estimated at about 7.15 million dollars.  With the end of fire season, burning will be permitted 24 hours a day, but only on “Permissive Burn Days” as established by the Air Pollution Control District in each county. CAL  counties of Calaveras, Tuolumne, and those eastern portions of FIRE burn permits will not be required until May 1, 2008.
