Recreational fire permit

Permit required for recreational fires

Maple Grove residents may have recreational fires if they have a valid permit and follow safety guidelines published by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, the State Fire Marshal Division, and the Maple Grove Fire-Rescue Department. The city's recreational burn permit lists these requirements.
