Burning Restrictions Lifted

Recent widespread precipitation and cooler temperatures have eased the critical fire danger across the state, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources lifted restrictions on open burning

this morning.

Campfires will be allowed throughout the state and permits for open burning of debris will be issued once again.

The DNR reminds everyone that, although the statewide restrictions are lifted, local areas, counties or municipalities may have specific regulations or restrictions that affect burning operations.

The Minnesota Interagency Fire Center advises anyone burning should keep their burn piles small, have a water supply nearby, and stay with the fire until it is completely out. If fire escapes, the homeowner is responsible for damage and suppression costs.

Burning permits are available through state and federal forestry offices, township fire wardens.
