Burns without Permit

A Garfield man has been cited for failure to obtain a burning permit in connection with a fire on land the man owns east of Sebeka.

The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a structure fire in Meadow Township late last Saturday morning.

The officials arrived at the scene, a small detached garage and an abandoned house were found to be fully engulfed in flames. The landowner, Jeremy Wagner, told authorities he just wanted to burn the garage down, but the flames spread to the abandoned house.

Wagner stated he did not have a burning permit even though he knew he needed one.
