DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service is restricting campfires in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northeastern Minnesota because of hot, dry weather.

Starting Saturday, campfires, charcoal or wood-burning camp stoves will be allowed only between 7 p.m. and midnight in the entire BWCAW.

Gas and propane cook stoves can still be used at any time of day.
