A fire ban that was issued for all provincial Crown land south of the Churchill River in Saskatchewan has now been lifted.
The ban was put in place Aug. 1 and expanded Aug. 31 due to extreme wildfire hazards. It was rescinded Wednesday after many areas of the province received rainfall, and cooler temperatures and higher humidities returned.
There are now no active provincial fire bans in Saskatchewan, but campfire restrictions remain in place for Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park and the Cypress Lake Recreation Site, where conditions remain extremely dry.
Municipalities, regional and national parks may still have burning restrictions in place.
