Angeles National Forest fire danger elevated

The Angeles National Forest raised the fire danger level from “high” to “very high” Monday.

The move was prompted by above-normal temperatures coupled with unusually dry vegetation, U.S. Forest Service officials said.

Live fuel moisture readings have been declining, grasses at lower elevations have cured and recent fire activity has increased in and around the forest.

Open wood and charcoal fires will still be permitted in approved “developed” campgrounds and picnic areas where a steel ring or stoves are provided. Propane or jelled gas stoves and grills are permitted in non-developed areas with a valid California Campfire Permit.

All fireworks are prohibited on national forest lands.
