It might be hard to believe at the end of November, but wildfire danger persists in areas of Minnesota with little or no snow, and where mild temps will melt it over this Thanksgiving weekend.  Leanne Langeberg with the Interagency Fire Center in Grand Rapids says if you’re thinking about doing any debris burning…

“The recommendation is, we’d like to see that there’s at least three to six inches of continuous snow-pack cover.”

Burning permits are required across much of the state right now.  Langeberg says, use extra caution even with recreational fires — and don’t burn at all, if you don’t have to.
