Due to recent precipitation, the Manitoba Wildfire Service was able to lift all remaining restrictions in Area 4 on Wednesday.
North of the Wanipigow River, east of Lake Winnipeg to the Ontario border, includes Atikaki Provincial Park, and north to the Poplar River
Wildfires are still a possibility, therefore Manitobans are warned to be vigilant.
All paths in provincial parks are now open, and campfires are only permitted in designated pits. Provincial burning permits will once again be available through the Manitoba Conservation and Climate office at the municipal or regional level.
The province reminds people that fireworks and lanterns are prohibited in these parks at all times.
While the province has lifted restrictions, many municipalities have implemented burning restrictions so residents are encouraged to check with their local municipal offices for more information.
The province will not grant burning licenses in areas surrounding municipalities that have already enacted municipal burning restrictions.
As of Aug. 11, the city of Winnipeg has already lifted all fire prohibitions.
The Manitoba government’s wildfire website has further information on the Manitoba Wildfire Service, situation updates, limitations, and other critical wildfire updates. Individuals can also follow the Manitoba government’s Twitter account.
