Due to cooler temperatures and recent rainfall, the County of Grande Prairie Regional Fire Service has lifted the fire restriction that was put in place on September 9 for the entire County, along with the towns of Beaverlodge, Sexsmith and Wembley.

Residents are reminded that permits are required during the fire season. Burning is not permitted when winds reach, or are forecasted to reach, 12 km per hour or higher.

For information on safe burning practices or to obtain a permit, call 780-532-9727 or visit the Fire Services page.
