After battling over ten days of flooding, the scene in Lamont County is shifting towards wildfire prevention.
On Thursday (May 3), the county ended their local state of emergency and implemented a fire ban.
"This means all fire permits are suspended effective immediately, we're also asking that propane barbecues be used for cooking only and have to be attended at all times," said Lamont County communications coordinator Heather Atkinson. "Also no open fires like burning barrels and warming fires are allowed during the ban."
Controlled burn permits are not being issued at this time.
According to Atkinson, Lamont County had three reports of wildfires on Thursday (May 3) alone.
