DNR fire danger considered "very high" in Eau Claire, Clark County

The DNR updates its burning restrictions daily after 11 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Department of Natural Resources considers the fire danger in Eau Claire and Clark Counties to be "very high" on Tuesday.

It means that burning is not allowed in the areas of those counties that the DNR regulates. It strongly urges people not to start campfires, but allows campfires that are used for cooking or warming.

Several other surrounding counties were considered "high" on the DNR's fire danger map on Tuesday. A recorded message on the Eau Claire Fire and Rescue burning permit hotline Tuesday morning said permits are being issued "for today's date."
