SUDBURY -- The fire ban imposed during the recent hot and dry weather in Greater Sudbury will be lifted at midnight Tuesday, the city announced Monday.

"Although weather conditions have improved, the fire hazard in Greater Sudbury and area remains high," the city said in a news release.

"While campfires, chiminea fireplaces, crop residue fires, and other types of outdoor burning are permitted, please be safe and cautious around any outdoor fires, and never leave a fire unattended."

The fire ban could be reinstated if required by weather conditions. For information about open air burning in Greater Sudbury, click here.
