Local Fire Danger Warning 07 Apr 12

The fire danger remains high across the majority of Minnesota today (SAT), and a Red Flag Warning will be in effect again through this evening. Nicollet County Sheriff Dave Lange says that with the conditions like they are people shouldn’t be burning. He says spring is always a time when people like to cleanup and burn brush and that type of thing, but because of the conditions they are recommending no burning at this time. Low humidity and high winds have fueled the potential for fire. Many local-area counties are not issuing burning permits at this time. Recreational fires are allowed, but not recommended.
