- Lake Washburn Association
What a spring we have had in the north woods.....hot, dry and in a drought! Hard to believe our lake is so low and lawns have turned brown. We are so extremely dry that we have burning restrictions...please check the DNR site for current information. One huge restriction is absolutey NO FIREWORKS unless it is a city.
Please do not tempt fate by trying to set off fireworks and start a fire that could become wild and burn your property and your neighbors. Restrictions are posted for a reason and right now we are prime for wildfires. We have not had rain that would even come close to making it safe. Remember too, some fireworks are illegal in Minnesota. The 4th of July is a time to celebrate. Let's keep it that way!
Follow the restrictions - No Fireworks!!! It will make a safe holiday for everyone.
