DNR lifts burn restrictions in parts of drought stricken south Wis.

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state DNR says it will lift burning restrictions starting tomorrow in parts of six south central and southwest Wisconsin counties. Lands within DNR fire protection areas will have their bans on burning, campfires, and smoking lifted in Dane, Crawford, Grant, Iowa, Richland, and Sauk counties. Also, bans on campfires will be lifted at Big Foot Beach State Park, as well as Lapham Peak, the Kettle Moraine southern forest unit, the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail, and the Bong Recreation Area. All those changes take effect at 12:01 tomorrow morning. The DNR’s Trent Marty says the drought is far from over, but recent rains have lowered the fire protection risks in some areas. The DNR still emphasizes caution. And it says emergency burning restrictions remain in effect in all or parts of 11 central Wisconsin counties – plus Buckhorn, Hartman Creek, Mill Bluff, and Roche-a-Cri state parks. Campfires are allowed in those parks, but some burning restrictions remain there.
