No Open Burning in McLeod County


Elevated fire conditions have resulted in McLeod County enacting restrictions on open burning through Sunday, October 11 at 6 p.m.  

Dry conditions, combined with gusty winds and low relative humidity values, mean any spark could become a wildfire. Do not burn while these restrictions are in effect and check any burning done recently to ensure the fire is out.

Fall harvest and hunting seasons are in full swing – including the pheasant hunting season opener this weekend – which bring additional and inherent fire risks. Farm implements and heavy equipment can be fire-starting sources. Hunters can do their  part by parking vehicles only in designated parking areas on public land, well away from tall, dry grasses.
