The burning ban that has been in effect in New Richmond due to dry conditions has been lifted.

"The dangerous threat has passed," said New Richmond Fire Chief Jim VanderWyst. "However everyone needs to be vigilant, the dry vegetation can still cause a rampant fire."

If residents plan to do some burning, VanderWyst said people should always have a water source available just in case the fire gets away and becomes uncontrollable.
