The Saskatchewan government has lifted the ban on open fires for all provincial Crown land south of the Yellowhead Highway.
The province says cooler temperatures and snow in many areas has prompted the ban to be lifted on open fires for all provincial Crown land south of Highway 16, including provincial parks and recreation sites.
The ban was put in place October 19.
There are now no active provincial fire bans in Saskatchewan.
Municipalities as well as regional and national parks may have burning restrictions in place that are not affected by lifting the provincial ban.
However, residents and travellers are asked to take care when using fire for any purpose.
