Cypress County has lifted its current fire control order, thanks to rainfall that has fallen throughout southeast Alberta.
Fire permits will once again be issued, but county fire chief Dennis Mann urges that extreme caution be maintained and that all permitted burning be supervised by an adult at all times.
Also, the lifting of the order does not impact any existing fire control orders issued by cities or towns in the region and does not affect any fire bans currently in place in provincial parks.
