Spring Burning Restrictions Begin Soon In Cook, Lake, Northern St. Louis Counties


Spring weather has come early this year, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has begun implementing burning restrictions across the state.  On Monday, April 24, burning restrictions will impact Cook, Lake, and northern St. Louis counties.

The DNR stresses that as conditions for wildfires increase, exposed dead grass and brush can light easily and burn quickly, especially in windy conditions.

During spring restrictions, the state will not give out burning permits for burning brush or yard waste.  Debris burning is especially dangerous in April and May when most wildfires occur in Minnesota. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site, or wait until after green-up when it is safer to burn.

Once restrictions are implemented, they usually last from four to six weeks.  Burning conditions can also vary greatly across Minnesota, so be sure to click the link below for updated conditions and restrictions.
