DNR to lift burning restrictions in several northern Minnesota counties

Burning restrictions will soon be lifted 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.

On May 16, burning restrictions will be lifted in Beltrami, Cass, Clearwater, Itasca, Kittson, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Mahnomen, Marshall, Pennington, Polk, Roseau and St. Louis counties.

On May 21, burning restrictions will be lifted in Lake and Cook counties.

This will remove the spring seasonal open burning restrictions throughout the state.
