Officials say it'll last about five to six weeks.
They include counties like Otter Tail, Becker, Stevens, Douglas and Mahnomen. That means people can't burn off brush, grass or other debris on their property.
Officials say because it hasn't rained much, the ground is extra dry.
"The current conditions are extremely dry out there yet. We haven't had a real good significant rainfall to help, help the situation with grass fires and wildfires."
There are variance permits available for controlled burns.
