Burn Ban!

Newberry Springs Fire Department

Date: 06/16/2024

To the Residents of Newberry Springs,

Dear Newberry Springs residents,

In light of the increased fire activity, erratic weather, and significant vegetation growth within Newberry Springs, the Newberry Springs Fire Department is implementing a burn ban effective immediately. This measure is necessary to ensure the safety of our community and to reduce the risk of wildfires during this period of heightened fire danger.

Effective immediately, all open burns within Newberry Springs are strictly prohibited. Additionally, the issuance of burn permits is suspended until further notice. This ban includes but is not limited to, the burning of yard waste, agricultural burns, and any other types of open flames that could potentially contribute to a fire hazard.

The decision to enforce this burn ban has been made with the utmost concern for the safety and well-being of our community. The significant growth of vegetation in the area, coupled with the dry weather has created conditions that are highly susceptible to rapid fire spread. We urge all residents to comply with this directive and take necessary precautions to prevent any accidental fires.

The Newberry Springs Fire Department will continue to monitor the situation closely and will lift the burn ban once it is deemed safe to do so. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this critical time.

For updates and further information, please contact the Newberry Springs Fire Department at (760) 257-3016 or visit our website at 

Thank you for your attention to this matter and for helping to keep our community safe.


Daphne Lanier, 
Fire Chief                                                                                                                                                                                                                Newberry Springs Fire Department
