More Burning Restrictions Lifted

Burning restrictions are being  lifted today in several counties in northern Minnesota due to the green-up of fire fuels, which eases wildfire conditions, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Burning will now be permitted in several more northern MN counties including Beltrami and Cass.. 

Next Monday, burning restrictions will be lifted in Lake and Cook counties.

This will remove the spring seasonal open burning restrictions throughout the state. However, special burning restrictions continue in portions of Pine County because of large amounts of fuel from the blowdown storm in July 2011.

Although the DNR is lifting seasonal state burning restrictions, other local restrictions may apply.
