The burning restrictions that went into effect on April 15th for McLeod County have been lifted effective today (April 19th).

The McLeod County Fire Chief’s urge people to still use caution when burning.

Authorities say people should call for assistance early if fire is starting to get out of control so that the fire departments can assist before it gets more challenging to extinguish the fire and other buildings and property are threatened.

…and a reminder to anyone that burns, your are required to have a permit and to monitor the fire while it burns. You also need to call the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office before starting the burn and after it is completed.
