The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will lift burning restrictions in 13 Minnesota counties beginning at 8 a.m. Friday, April 27. The DNR is lifting restrictions in areas where green-up is occurring and wildfire conditions are easing.
The following counties will be removed from burning restrictions April 27: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Dakota, Douglas, Hennepin, Isanti, Pope, Ramsey, Stearns, Sherburne, Washington and Wright counties.
Although the state burning restrictions are lifted in these counties, local areas, counties or municipalities may have specific regulations or restrictions that affect burning operations.
People should check with local authorities to obtain proper permits before conducting any open burning.
