The hot weather is not helping certain areas of Saskatchewan that are extremely dry.
The R.M of Lake of the Rivers has been forced to roll out a fire ban for the entire R.M only excluding the town of Assiniboia.
R.M Administrator , Ellen Klein said the extremely dry conditions are making it easy for one spark to spread quickly.
“The R.M is very dry right now, the grass is getting to the point where you walk across it it crackles, it’s that dry. If there’seven a slight breeze a spark from an open fire can set it off and it will just go,” Klein said.
The ban means no open fires of any kind until at least August 18th.
However Klein said if it does rain before that they will review the conditions and make a decision at that time.
