In this image, firefighters just finished up battling a small brush fire in San Diego in May 2011.
A no-burn proclamation was put into place for the county Monday.
Even if you're not burning in your backyard, this still applies to you.
According to CalFire, what you think won't start a fire will in many cases because of the low humidity and high heat covering the county this week.
It’s illegal to start a fire even if you’ve gotten a burn permit officials said. Those burn permits are currently suspended until further notice.
If you want to gather around a campfire at a campground, you’ll have to postpone for now.
The burn-ban will continue until authorities deem it safe.
