La Ronge, Air Ronge and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band communities of La Ronge #156 and Kitsaki #156B are under a fire ban again.

The ban was implemented at 10 a.m. Friday and will remain in effect until “significant precipitation,” according to a statement by the La Ronge Regional Fire Department.

The ban is on all open fires, and is due to heat and lack of moisture in the area.

The tri-communities were under a fire ban implemented on June 30 but it was lifted Tuesday after it had rained.

A fire ban for the Lac La Ronge Provincial Park has been in effect since July 1.
