Burning Permits & Restrictions

There are strict guidelines for burning permits. Wright County and the city of St. Michael requires a permit and has burning restrictions.

Where do I obtain a permit? When burning permits can be issued, they can be purchased at the St. Michael City Hall or Hardware Hank. They are also available at any DNR Forestry Office, or online.

When do I need to obtain a burning permit? When the fire is larger than 3 feet high and 3 feet around, the ground is not covered by more than 3 inches of show, and/or when the fire is not contained within an approved burner or a cooking/heating device (e.g., charcoal grill or camp stove).
