The ban on these blazes will end as of noon today (Tuesday). The restrictions had been in place since the end of July.

A prohibition on several activities and the use of equipment, materials, and substances will also wrap up.

This includes fireworks, air curtain burners, sky lanterns burn barrels, or burn cages of any size or binary exploding targets.
