Burning ban begins Monday in county
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has announced that burning restrictions for Cook, Koochiching, Lake, Lake of the Woods, and the remainder of St. Louis County will go into effect starting at 8 a.m. on May 2.
"Until the growth of new grass appears and we move into summer conditions, restrictions will remain in place," said Ron Stoffel, DNR wildfire suppression supervisor. "This could take four or more weeks."
