Fire Prevention Week is April 20-26. In the last 18 months in Minnesota, wildfires burned 21 homes and three commercial buildings, threatened 500 other structures, and burned thousands of acres of forest. Most wildfires are caused by people misjudging the weather and fire danger.
Burning restrictions extend to 11 additional central Minnesota counties April 21.
