Debris burning restrictions mean the state will not give out permits to burn brush or yard waste, according to a DNR release. Counties starting burning restrictions Monday are Beltrami, Carlton, northern Cass, Itasca, Kittson, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Marshall, Pennington, Roseau and southern St. Louis.

Hubbard, Clearwater, Mahnomen and southern Cass counties implemented burning restrictions April 21.

Recreational fires and campfires are still permitted, but residents need to take caution, officials said.

The DNR’s fire conditions information and map can be found online at dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire/firerating_restrictions.html.
