ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — State burning restrictions are being lifted next week in 13 more Minnesota counties.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, open burning restrictions will be removed from the following counties: Aitkin, Becker, Carlton, southern Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Otter Tail, Pine, Todd and Wadena.

Local restrictions may still apply, and people should check with local authorities before burning.

The Department of Natural Resources is lifting restrictions in areas that are greening up and wildfire conditions are easing.

Restrictions will remain in the St. Croix Valley blowdown area of Pine County.

Many counties in central and northern Minnesota will remain under burning restrictions until wildfire conditions lessen.
