ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The Minnesota Department of Transportation plans a number of prescribed fires running through the end of this month.

The burns are planned in three locations--along Highway 55 between Paynesville and Brooten, near U.S. Highway 10 at the St. Cloud Travel Information Center, and along the Lake Wobegon Trail near Sauk Centre.

Traffic should not be affected and all roads and trails will remain open. The prescribed fires are used to improve native vegetation and for weed control.
