Voyageurs lifts fire restrictions

Press Release

The rainfall received this past week over much of northern Minnesota has moderated the fire danger for the short term.
Around an inch of rain has fallen in the area since April 28.
Given the rainfall amounts received, Voyageurs National Park has lifted the ban on fires in the park effective at 12:01 a.m. today (May 5).
Once again, visitors can have recreational fires (campfires) in designated metal fire rings.
Charcoal-fuelled fires in metal fire rings and grills also are allowed.
Park staff thanks everyone for co-operating with the fire ban during the recent extreme fire danger period.s
