Dry conditions in the region have forced Wheatland County to declare a fire ban.
The fire ban affects the entire county and indicates a moderate risk of fire. The county says all fire burning permits are suspended until further notice.
According to the County, exemptions to the ban include internal household fireplaces, regulated burning barrels and camping stoves, solid and liquid fuel barbecues, recreational campfires and fires contained within approved facilities and appliances in designated camping areas.
Earlier this week fire crews from Rockyford, Rosebud, Standard, Dalum and Wheatland West battled a grass fire near Rockyford.
The ban was put into effect Friday evening (April 7).
