NR fire ban lifted Tuesday
A burning ban, which has been in place for more than a week in the New Richmond area, has been lifted.
According to New Richmond Fire Chief Jim VanderWyst, the recent rain the area has received has helped to lessen the wild fire danger in the region. More rain is expected over the next couple days.
Dry conditions and high winds led to the fire ban initially.
