Heidi and John spoke with Paul Lundgren State of Minnesota Wildfire Section Manager about:

  • Burning restrictions and why they contribute to wildfire prevention (30 percent reduction in Minnesota wildfires during the last decade).
  • Consequences of an escaped burn pile – injury and property destruction
  • Number of wildfires and acres burned so far in spring 2018

Information on Burning Restrictions visit the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
