News Release - September 1, 2000
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
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
