Burning Restriction Remain for St. Cloud, Area Counties
UNDATED - The DNR has removed burning and campfire restrictions for parts of Minnesota - but not for us.
The Department of Natural Resources says they'll remove the burning and campfire restrictions in counties in northwestern and southeastern Minnesota.
However, 18 counties in east-central Minnesota remain under the restrictions. The counties include: Benton, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Scherburne, Stearns, Todd and Wright. Campfires or recreational fires outside of cities are allowed only in a designated receptacle designed for such use. Campfires are also still allowed at staffed campgrounds.
A burning ban also remains in affect for the city of St. Cloud. Recreational fires will not be allowed, until we get some rain. The restriction does not include grilling.
