Fore more information on reducing the fire risk to your home and property, visit the Minnesota DNR's Firewise website.
Burning permits are a critical tool in wildfire protection, when used appropriately. These permits allow members of the public to burn legal materials outdoors, reducing the risk of a fire escaping and threatening lives, property, or natural resources. Burning permits can be obtained from the Minnesota DNR at https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire/questions.html.
After a permit is obtained, check daily fire restrictions before activating the burn permit.
