Manitoba lifts fire, travel bans in parks
The province has lifted back-country travel and campfire restrictions in provincial parks.
The measures were put in place due to extremely dry conditions in Southeast Manitoba, where a number of wildfires were burning last week.
Crews continue to hold back fires near Marchand and Badger, and they are not spreading, officials said.
On Saturday officials said they were lifting the restrictions in parks after rainfall reduced the wildfire risk.
The province said rural municipalities may still have travel restrictions in place.
Meantime, Manitoba Conservation said there have been no major incidents at provincial parks so far this weekend.
