Rapid snowmelt, low precipitation, and warm weather in the month of March have combined to create a condition that is unsafe for burning. A High Fire Danger Rating means unattended fires are likely to escape, quick to spread, and difficult to put out if not caught early. Beginning today, the DNR is placing restrictions on burning in several counties, including Ramsey and Hennepin. During this period, it is recommended that we compost or chip debris.
