Fire bans have been lifted throughout most of the province.

However, burning restrictions are still in place in a number of provincial parks.

The fire ban had been in place for most provincial parks and Crown lands since May 14 due to wildfire concerns.

However, rain in recent days has lessened this threat.

At the same time, campfire restrictions remain in place in Saskatchewan Landing, Pike Lake, Blackstrap, Great Blue Heron, Candle Lake, The Battlefords and Narrow Hills provincial parks.

A fire ban also remains in place in the Prince Albert National Park.

It is recommended to check with local authorities as to what specific burning restrictions are in place in the provincial parks mentioned.

Fire bans have also been lifted for the Town of La Ronge, Village of Air Ronge and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band reserves 156 and 156B.
