Residents that live in the M.D. of Bonnyville’s northern portion will be allowed to have fires and drive ATVs.
The favourable weather in the province has allowed the government to drop the fire ban and OHV ban in the Forest Protection Area to a fire advisory.
That means backyard fire pits, safe wood campfires on public and private lands, and barbeque charcoal briquettes are allowed for residents who live there.
The restrictions will be re-evaluated daily.
Under the fire advisory, burning without a permit and unattended fires are still prohibited.
The fire ban was put in place in April to limit the risk of wildfire during the COVID-19 pandemic.
