The fire ban put in place by the Town of Edson is now lifted. Edson Fire Chief Al Schram feels the conditions have improved enough with the recent precipitation and cool temperatures to remove all restrictions put in place earlier this month.
Schram adds, while the fire risk has been reduced, it’s still important to be cautious when doing any type of burning within the Town limits. It’s important to keep back yard fires at a manageable size. If residents have any questions or concerns, they’re encouraged to contact the Edson Fire Department at 780-723-3178.
