While our weekend's weather was certainly on the wet side, the moisture helped lessen the fire risk in town.

Due to improving conditions in the area, Cochrane Fire Services has lifted the Fire Restriction for the Town of Cochrane.

Effective immediately, Cochrane Fire Services says that there are no fire advisories or bans in Cochrane, and permit burning is once again allowed. 

Officials remind residents that it's always necessary to follow safe burning practices.
