The Los Padres National Forest is putting additional fire restrictions into place on Thursday.

This comes after other restrictions were announced this week due to increased fire risk.

Wood and charcoal fires are prohibited in all areas of the Los Padres National Forest.

People with valid permits can use portable stoves and lanterns using gas only in designated campfire sites. 
Recreational target shooting is not allowed at all in the forest without a special permit. 

Fireworks are also prohibited.
