Wetter weather alters fire ban and OHV restriction

Revised map of fire ban and OHV restriction provided by AAF.

Wet and cool weather in the Lac La Biche forest area is resulting in the province redrawing the boundaries for a fire ban and Off Highway vehicle use.

The fire hazard has been reduced to the point where the fire ban and OHV restriction will no longer be in effect in portions of the Lac La Biche area south of Fort McMurray.

The restriction remains in effect for the Fort MCMurray forest area of northeastern Alberta.

Even with the wetter weather, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is reminding residents and visitors to fully extinguish campfires.
