Camp Ripley to begin spring range burns

The Camp Ripley Fire Department Friday will begin conducting its spring range burns. Range burning should be completed within one month unless weather conditions require additional time.

During this time period the surrounding areas of Camp Ripley can expect to see smoke and smell the fires. The staff at Camp Ripley apologizes for this; however conducting the burns greatly reduces the chances for uncontrollable wildfires.

The fires are started, monitored and controlled in accordance with the Department of Natural Resources and the Camp Ripley Fire Department.

Individuals with concerns about the burns may contact the Camp Ripley Public Affairs Office by phone at (320) 616-3122.
