Park lifts fire ban

The rainfall received this past weekend and earlier this week over much of northern Minnesota has moderated fire danger for the short-term.
Rainfall amounts received across Minnesota varied from a trace to almost two inches.
Given the rainfall amounts received, Voyageurs National Park yesterday lifted the ban on fires in the park.
Once again, visitors can have recreational fires (campfires) in designated metal fire rings. Charcoal-fueled fires in metal fire rings and grills also are allowed.
Fires in rock rings are not allowed. Rock rings do not contain fires properly and can allow them to escape.
Park staff thanks everyone for co-operating with the fire ban during the recent extreme fire danger period.
