ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has removed the burning and campfire restrictions in all of Minnesota.  Burning permits will once again be available as determined by local conditions.

Jean Goad with the Minnesota Interagency Fire Center says residents should be aware that conditions can change daily and some counties may still limit burning as conditions warrant. Until snow covers the ground, grass can be wet one day and be ripe for burning the next.

The DNR advises residents and homeowners to use caution if they to any open burning.

Although much of Minnesota has received precipitation to lower the chances of fires starting and spreading, soil moisture is still well below normal.
