The burn ban in Dunn County may be lifted, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still restrictions.
By Bryan Katz
As we all know, Dunn County has had extremely dry conditions for quite some time and is surrounded by endless miles of fuel supplies that are potentially susceptible to combustion; meaning that Dunn County could easily go up in flames should something catastrophic occur.
As of late, Dunn County has sustained rural fires causing the Dunn County Department of Emergency Services to be in consultation with local fire departments so that all available volunteers and paid firefighters may be committed to protecting all assets, including life and property.
The Dunn County Board of Commissioners have declared a Fire Emergency and Burn Ban to include a ban on ignition of fireworks, garbage burning, campfires, burning of farm or crop land and unnecessary off-road motorized travel when the Fire Index is in the High, Very High or Extreme category.
The burning of garbage pits and/or large controlled burns will not be allowed at this time.
