Superior National Forest announced Wednesday that it would lift the ban on campfires at many of its campgrounds with designated fire rings, a report said.

Northeastern Minnesota has seen a significant decrease in fire danger due to cooler, wetter conditions.

Campfires are allowed in the following campgrounds starting Thursday: Devils Track; East Bearskin; Flour Lake; Kimball Lake; Two Island Lake, Birth Lake, Fall Lake, Fenske Lake, South Kawishiwi River, Echo Lake, Lake Jeanette, Cadotte Lake, Pfeiffer Lake, Whiteface Reservoir, Crescent Lake, Divide Lake, Ninemile Lake, Sawbill Lake, and Temperance River.

Gas-powered stoves and lanterns are also permitted.

All remote campsites within the forest remain under the campfire ban, even those in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

Because they are in areas that remain at risk from existing fires, the Forest Service campgrounds at Trails End and McDougal Lake as well as Little Isabella remain closed to the public.

Numerous wildfires that were growing in Northeastern Minnesota during August have stopped growing and are now under control. As the drought-stricken region finally got some rain, no new fires were reported in September.
