Burning Restrictions Lifted for Northwest Wisconsin
The burning restrictions for Northwest Wisconsin have ended effective at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday May 24, 2012.  Portions of Burnett, Douglas, Polk and Washburn Counties were affected by these restrictions.  Due to significant precipitation, oak trees have leafed-out and conifers have pollinated, indicating that green-up has occurred.  Residents impacted by the wind storm should continue to be mindful of fire danger, burning permits and alternatives to burning.  You can access additional information by visiting http://dnr.wi.gov and entering the keywords “storm” or “fire.”   Thank you to everyone for complying with these restrictions.
