Burning prompts fire ban reminder

The province wide burning ban is still in effect.

This reminder from Canyon-Lister Fire Department.

Chief Glenn Guthrie says crews responded to calls in Erickson and Canyon over the weekend.

Guthrie says it was concerned citizens who tipped them off.

He says the department is following up on every burning complaint and taking them very seriously.

The fire is 80 % contained.

And the Parker Ridge fire down in Idaho remains at 27 % contained.
