Because of continued dry conditions throughout much of the state, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources issued some new burning restrictions that start at 1 a.m. on Sunday.

The DNR has banned all campfires or recreational fires except in a residential or cabin yard or in a staffed campground, such as a state park.

The ban also includes debris and brush fires and fireworks outside cities and towns in the following counties:

Becker, Beltrami, Benton, Cass (north of Highway 200), Clearwater, Douglas, Hubbard, Kanabec, Kittson, Lake of the Woods, Mahnomen, Marshall, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Otter Tail, Pennington, Polk, Red Lake, Roseau, Stearns, Todd, and Wadena.

According to the DNR, fall weekends bring many people outdoors to recreate, including hunters, campers, and others who want to have campfires.

The DNR urges everyone to use extreme caution where campfires are allowed. Charcoal fires are not limited at this time, but they should not be left unattended. Make sure they are completely out before leaving.

Fire conditions change quickly. More information, maps, and fire conditions, are available online.
