Manitobans have been under a fire ban for much of the summer but now the warm weather can end in fireworks.
Changes to bonfire and camping restrictions are coming, just in time to end off the summer. As of 8 a.m., the last of the fire bans are being lifted.
Restrictions remained in place for Area 4, which encompasses the area north of the Wanipigow River and east of Lake Winnipeg to the Ontario border after others were lifted. In a provincial statement on Tuesday afternoon, it is being announced that this ban is over thanks to much-needed rain.
"Manitobans are reminded there are still some areas where the risk of wildfire may still exist even after the rain, therefore caution is required," the statement reads.
All provincial trails are now open. Fireworks and sky lanterns can be used with the required permit, excluding in provincial parks.
May municipalities currently have their own fire bans implemented, such as in the southern portion of Manitoba in the RM of La Broquerie, the RM of Springfield, and the RM of Alonsa.
