Burn Permits Suspended Until Further Notice (Updated 3/26/2020)

The DNR has suspended all open burning permits until further notice. Due to the growing COVID-19 climate, the DNR is hoping to minimize the chances of wildfires and ensure that first responders will be available to assist with the current health crisis. At this time, only campfires with cut firewood are exempt from this suspension; burning of any yard clippings or other debris is not allowed.
