ATASCADERO, Calif. - Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services will close the burn season on Friday.

“Due to the large amount of rain and rapid increase in temperature & windy conditions has caused the grasses to dry out quickly, causing an increased fire danger,” Fire Chief Casey Bryson said in a news release.

Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services encourages residents to utilize the Green Waste Recycling Program through Atascadero Waste Alternatives.

Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services also wants residents to get their weed abatement done before June 1.
