Another county has put a fire ban in place.

Sturgeon County has announced that starting at 1 p.m. on Tuesday (May 2), no more outdoor fires will be allowed. 

Propane appliances such as barbecues will still be permitted.

Sturgeon isn't the only county to announce a fire ban. On Monday, Lamont County and Strathcona County put bans in place due to the dry, hot weather.
