Under the restriction, only campfires in an established fire ring associated with a home, cabin, campground, or resort are allowed. No fireworks may be ignited on any public or private land outside city limits. You should check with your local community for any additional restrictions on fireworks. The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste.

The burning restrictions will remain in place until terminated by the DNR Commissioner when weather and environmental conditions indicate a reduction in fire danger.
