St. Paul The Minnesota DNR has lifted all burning restrictions as of 8 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15. Open burning permits had been suspended Sept. 28 in anticipation of the strike by state employees.

Residents needing to burn vegetative material can now acquire a
burning permit from state fire wardens or DNR forestry offices.

“The current cool and wet conditions will help in controlling
permit fires,” said George Meadows, fire prevention coordinator for
the DNR Forestry Division. “However, the DNR reminds people that
they must still attend their fires at all times and make sure that
a fire is completely out before leaving.”
