In the interest of Public Health, all residents are encouraged to find alternative measures to burning.  The City Ordinance allows burning of leaves from 3:00 p.m. until dusk except on Saturday and Sunday when burning is allowed from noon to dusk beginning September 15 through December 1.  All fires shall be completely extinguished by dusk and shall not be less than twenty-five (25) feet away from any structure, wood fence, hedge or brush and not less than five (5) feet away from any property line.  The burning of leaves is prohibited on city streets, boulevards and any public property by private citizens.  Leaf burning is prohibited in certain areas to protect the health of patients in the United Hospital District facility within a two (2) block area surrounding the hospital facility in Blue Earth, Minnesota.
