Burning Restrictions in Effect for Most of Minnesota

Open burning restrictions are now in place across almost all of Minnesota.

Due to increased wildfire risk from dry conditions, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will not issue permits for open burning of brush or yard waste in many counties, including; Blue Earth, Brown, Faribault, Freeborn, Martin, Mower and Nicollet.

Restrictions will remain in place until they are announced to be lifted.  The exceptionally dry season, leaves and the wind gusts this last week have prompted this response.
