Fire Danger Still High

Despite some light showers over the weekend, wildfire danger in Northeastern Minnesota is still high according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Minnesota Public Radio updated the situation yesterday, HERE.

Despite a little over a tenth of an inch of rain in Duluth over the weekend, the region remains more than two-and-a-half inches shy of its normal precipitation for the year so far.

Burning restrictions are in force across the region, as we have reported HERE.

MPR reports that nearly 950 wildfires have burned nearly 21,000 acres of Minnesota already.
