Burning Ban in Effect this Weekend in MN and WI

The Superior Fire Department is warning of extreme fire danger over the weekend. 

A burning ban is in effect in Northern Wisconsin and Northern Minnesota until further notice.  

A complete ban is in effect in Douglas County, which means no outdoor burning. The public is being asked to refrain from using backyard fire pits and having campfires. 

The National Weather Service has issued red flag warnings indicating high fire danger.  This means that fires could start quickly and grow large among dry grass and dead vegetation.
