Fire ban ends in Edmonton after nearly 1 month

The fire ban in place for Edmonton was lifted on Thursday.

People can now use backyard fire pits and BBQs, cooking stoves and backyard smokers that use wood and briquettes.

The ban was put in place on May 2.

A ban, or restriction, could return if conditions require it, the city said. Top Stories
