Burning restrictions are in effect as the July 4 weekend approaches, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The MnDNR’s webpage regarding north-central Minnesota burning restrictions states that:

  • No campfires are allowed for dispersed, remote or wilderness camping.

  • Campfires in established fire rings by a home, cabin, campground or resort are allowed, but extreme caution is advised.

  • No fireworks may be ignited outside city limits.

  • Burning permits will not be issued for debris, brush or yard waste.

MnDNR maps showing the level of fire danger throughout Minnesota identified Hubbard County as an area of high to very high risk this week. The DNR’s current burning restrictions map, as of Thursday, July 1, classifies Hubbard County under “restricted – agency approved permits only.”
