Burning Permits

Burning permits are required for any burning larger than a 3 foot by 3 foot recreational fire and/or snow cover is less then 3 inches on the ground. See the MN DNR web site for burning bans, restrictions, and helpful information. http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire/index.html

Burning of household waste has been illegal in Minnesota since 1969. 

A burning permit application must be filed at Hugo City Hall 72 hours before your planned burn.  The form is available at City Hall or to print at the link below.  

If you have any question regarding burning permits please contact the Hugo Fire Department Fire Marshal Gina Duncanson at gduncanson@ci.hugo.mn.us.
