McLeod County, in conjunction with the Minnesota Department of Natural
Resources – Forestry Division, has made the decision to lift the burning restrictions that were issued earlier this week.
Officals say it is important to remember that burning permits are still required for most burning. The permits can be picked up from your local township officials or fire wardens.
Before you burn, you’re asked to call the McLeod County Sheriffs Office so they know that the fire would be a controlled bum and would not have to page out the fire departments. Also, call when you are finished burning so that your address can be taken off of the burning list.
