ST. CLOUD -- The St. Cloud Fire Department has lifted the burning restrictions on recreation fires within the city.

Fire officials say the recent rain and damp weather has improved conditions enough to allow bonfires.

Fires will be allowed with a recreational fire permit available at Fire Station One on 10th Avenue North.

The fire department asks you to be aware of the potential for dry leaves accumulating against homes, garages and vehicles as they pose a fire hazard.
