Some Fire Restrictions Lifted

The Department of Natural Resources is lifting some open burning restrictions in central Minnesota.

Beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday landowners in Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison and Todd counties may request burning permits.
Wildfire Prevention Coordinator, Larry Himanga says cooler and wetter weather conditions we experienced the past several weeks and the ability of forestry personnel to regulate burning on a daily basis with our electronic burn permit system allows for earlier lifting of restrictions.
Restrictions will remain in effect for most of northern Minnesota, even though recent precipitation has lessened fire danger. The cooler weather has slowed the green-up process. As spring progresses northward, additional counties will have restrictions lifted.
