Starting today (Thurs), campfires are again allowed in designated fire rings, at fee campgrounds in Superior National Forest which are *not* closed to the public.  Spokeswoman Joanna Gilkeson:

“We’re really now starting to see some moisture, some rain and cooling temperatures, and the fire risk is starting to decrease.”

But Gilkeson stresses campfires are still not allowed in rustic campgrounds, backcountry sites, dispersed sites or the B-W-C-A Wilderness — even if there’s a designated fire grate.  And open flames such as tiki torches, charcoal grills and barbeques are not allowed anywhere in Superior National Forest.  And again, *no* campfires in fee campgrounds that remain closed to the public.
