The fire ban that was put in place by the Drumheller Fire Department has now been lifted just in time for the autumn season.
Drumheller Fire Chief Bruce Wade says the ban was lifted due to the slight increase in moisture in the weather.
"So basically because the temperatures are starting to drop, we have seen a little bit of rain. Also, at night it is cooling down and we are starting to see a little bit of dew and that type of thing. That is the reason it was rescinded," explained Wade.
While many are excited to cosy up to their campfire and roast marshmallows, there is always caution to be had when flames are involved.
"Things are still dry and we still caution people to not leave any fires unattended and when they are done to stir them, soak them and then stir them again," advised Wade.
It is good news for campfire lovers, not so good for firework enthusiasts.
"They are allowed to have campfires in their yard as long as they are in an approved pit with the screening and also designated camping areas are allowed to have campfires. No fireworks and fire permits are going to be issued until it gets a little bit better," concluded Wade.
