BAN ON OPEN FIRES LIFTED

Because of some rainfall and cooler weather, the ban on open fires in the

Centre Block of the Cypress Hills Provincial Park has been lifted.



Weather conditions have changed enough to warrant lifting the ban, however,

further warm dry weather will cause the hazards to rise quickly. Anyone

lighting open fires in the area is asked to exercise caution.



Due to dryer conditions along the Alberta border the ban on open fires, as well

as road restrictions, remain in effect for the West Block of Cypress Hills

Provincial Park.



Burning permits are required in and within 4.5 kilometres of provincial

forests. Free burning permits and information on safe burning practices are

available from any Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management district

office.
