To help ensure public safety and protect natural resources, burning restrictions will begin Friday, June 18 for the southern portion of Beltrami county and all of Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Morrison, Todd, and Wadena counties. Under the restrictions:
No campfires are allowed for dispersed, remote or backcountry camping. Campfires in established fire rings associated with a home, resort or campground (including state parks and state forests) are allowed, but extreme caution is warranted.
No fireworks may be ignited on any public or private land outside city limits. Check with your local community for any additional restrictions.
The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste.
Before you head to the cabin or campground, be sure to check fire danger conditions.
