ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) Even though much of Minnesota received late season snowfall, fire danger is expected to rapidly increase when the weather warms up, the snow melts and winds dry the dead standing grass and brush in open areas.
Because of that, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is placing burning restrictions over the east-central part of the state beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 21, for Anoka, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Pine, Ramsey, Sherburne, Washington and Wright counties.
Additional counties will be added as conditions change.
Temp: -6°F (-21°C)
