Air Quality Alert and Burn Restriction

Air quality is expected to reach the orange AQI category in central and southern Minnesota today, which is unhealthy for sensitive groups, including children and older adults.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has issued an air quality alert for central and southern Minnesota, effective from noon today (Tuesday, June 20), through 9 pm on Thursday, June 22.

The Red Wing Fire Department says no burning permit activations will be allowed starting this morning, lasting until Thursday evening.

Unless the air quality is extended, normal permit burning will resume again starting Friday at 6 am.
