We may have lost the opportunity during the Victoria Day long weekend, but the good news is the summer hasn't even begun yet.
With the amount of rain we've been seeing, the Provincial Fire Ban that was put in place on May 14th has been lifted in most provincial parks and crown land south of the Churchill River. However, burning restrictions remain in some parks.
These restrictions include Saskatchewan Landing, Pike Lake, Blackstrap, Great Blue Heron, Candle Lake, The Battlefords and Narrow Hills provincial parks, and Prince Albert National Park because of continuing dry conditions in those areas.
This lift only includes land owned by the province, and not municipalities, regional, and national parks.
Even without the ban, those planning to use campfires should still follow the necessary precautions. Like have a hose or water nearby and keeping the fire 3 meters away from flammable materials such as fences, trees, or houses.
With this announcement, there are now no active provincial fire bans in Saskatchewan.
