Angeles National Forest Fire Danger Elevated to Extreme

Release Date: Jul 14, 2021

ARCADIA, Calif., July 14 — Fire officials are raising the Fire Danger Level from “Very High” to “Extreme” in the Angeles National Forest and San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. “Fuel moistures on the forest are very dry, this condition combined with high temperatures support rapid fire spread.  By restricting the use of fire throughout the national forest, and increasing staffing levels, the objective is to reduce the potential of a catastrophic wildfire starting” said Angeles Forest Fire  Chief, Robert Garcia.

Restrictions include:

  • Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire, or stove fire, throughout the national forest and national monument.
  • Smoking. There is no smoking allowed anywhere in the forest. 
  • Welding, or operating an acetylene or other torch with open flame.
  • Discharging a firearm, air rifle, or gas gun, except in the authorized public shooting ranges. A person with a valid permit from the Forest Service or hunting with a valid California hunting license may discharge a firearm according to their permit or license.
  • All previous restrictions apply.
