U.P. Burning Ban Still Active for Some Areas

Parts of Upper Michigan remain under a No Burn Ban, despite a steady rain across the region today.

The Department of Natural Resources says open burning is not permitted in the eastern U.P. counties of Schoolcraft, Luce, Mackinac and Chippewa.

Burn permit restrictions are in effect for Alger, Delta and Houghton Counties.

In other Upper Peninsula counties, open burning is permitted and debris fires are allowed if proper precautions are taken and permits are issued by the resident’s municipality.
