ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- Due to the dry conditions, the St. Cloud Fire Chief is reminding you to take extra precautions with recreational fires.

Chief Matt Love says you should make sure a garden hose is nearby and the fire is closely monitored by a responsible adult.  When the activities are done for the evening, please be vigilant in making sure the fire is completely extinguished by drowning it with water.

At this time, there are no restrictions on recreational fires within the City of St Cloud.
