With the current burning restrictions and dry conditions in place there have been several questions regarding campfires. The Minnesota DNR is the regulatory agency that sets these restrictions, not the Fisher Fire Department. At this time you ARE allowed to have a campfire; however, that could change in the next couple of weeks. Should you have questions, please call the city office at 218-291-2207 or Josh Mailhot (Fire Chief) 252-377-7378. 


The MSFC establishes the minimum requirements for recreational fires that are applicable throughout the state of Minnesota. The following information is applicable even if a local jurisdiction does not have an ordinance regulating recreational fires. 


  • Recreational fires must be at least 25 feet from all buildings or combustible materials. Combustible materials are things such as wood, paper, and plastics [MSFC Section 307.4.2]. 

  • Conditions which could cause a fire to spread within 25 feet of a structure shall be eliminated prior to ignition [MSFC Section 307.4.2]. 

  • Recreational fires shall be located 10 feet from LP-Gas containers that are filled on site by the LP-Gas company [NFPA 58 Section]. 

  • Recreational fires must be constantly attended until the fire is extinguished [MSFC Section 307.5].  

  • A minimum of one portable fire extinguisher complying with MSFC Section 906 with a minimum 4-A rating or other approved on-site fire extinguishing equipment shall be readily available at all times until the fire is extinguished. Examples of other approved fire extinguishing equipment would be a charged garden hose, dirt, or sand (and a means of applying it) [MSFC Section 307.5]. 

  • The only materials permitted in a recreational fire are wood from trees, small branches, brush, or charcoal. Treated lumber materials, construction debris, garbage, plastic materials, or waste materials are not allowed to be burned in recreational fires [MN Statute 88.171]. 

  • Recreational fires must be immediately extinguished if they pose a fire safety risk, if they are not in compliance with the above, or when directed to do so by the fire code official [MSFC Section 307.3].  


If your fire should escape DO NOT wait to call for help. Waiting only increases the problem! Stay safe and have fun!
