FIRE RESTRICTIONS REDUCED ON THE CLEVELAND NATIONAL FOREST

December 20, 2012 (San Diego) – Effective Tuesday morning at 6:00 am, December 18, 2012, fire restrictions on the Cleveland National Forest were reduced to the “General Level.” The recent rain and cooler temperatures have lessened likelihood that small fires will become larger fires.



“While the height of our fire season may be coming to an end, we urge that people stay vigilant to prevent wildfires,” said Carlton Joseph, Fire Chief for the Cleveland National Forest.  “Our fire season in southern California is year round, and we remain ready to respond to these emergency situations.”
