Restrictions already in place include:
- Open fires, campfires, and charcoal fires are permitted only in campfire use sites and must be attended at all times.
- Internal combustion engines may be operated only on roads or trails designated for such use.
- A valid California Campfire Permit is required for portable stoves and lanterns using gas, jellied petroleum, or liquid fuel.
The /*San Bernardino National Forest*/ imposed similar expanded restrictions last month.
The fire rules in /*Los Padres National Forest*/ will remain in effect until the end of fire season, which comes once the forest receives at least two inches of rainfall.
