Burning Restrictions to be Lifted
Restrictions on open burning will be lifted next week in the Brainerd Lakes Area.
The DNR says beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, May 7th, burning restrictions will be removed from from Aitkin, southern Cass (south of Highway 200), Crow Wing, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Todd and Wadena counties.
The DNR is lifting restrictions in areas where green-up of the fine fuels is occurring and wildfire conditions are easing. Although lawns are green, outlying areas such as fields and swamps are still brown because of tall, dry, dead vegetation.
Because fire danger can change quickly, the DNR's electronic permit system may deny permit activations in selected counties when daily conditions warrant.
