Email News Alerts

Residents are reminded that permits are required for open burning and those permits have limitations, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).


An open burning permit is required for any fire larger than a campfire up to three feet in diameter and when the ground is not covered by at least three inches of snow.

Open burning is restricted to vegetative materials such as grass, brush, or untreated wood.
