Burning restrictions in effect for Hubbard, other counties
Please note burning restrictions are now on, according to Beltrami County emergency manager Beryl Weinberg. "We have had numerous grass fire, out of control types, calls for the last two weeks. Please do not burn. It is too windy, dry and dangerous to all."
Burning restrictions began at 8 a.m. Monday morning for South Beltrami, North Cass, and Hubbard counties.
Due to the high winds forecast for today; all burning permits in South Beltrami, North Cass, Clearwater, Mahnomen, Polk and Red lake counties are shut down for today. This includes variance permits.
Based on the forecast, they will likely be shut for tomorrow also, but further information will be forthcoming on Tuesday morning.
