Fire ban lifted on Bismarck-area wildlife management area

Posted August 25

— The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has removed the open fire ban put in place in April on the Oahe Wildlife Management Area south of Bismarck-Mandan.

The area still falls under burn restrictions implemented by Morton, Burleigh and Emmons counties. That means open fires, including campfires, are allowed only when the fire danger rating is low or moderate.

The Oahe Wildlife Management Area covers 25 square miles in portions of the three counties. It's prone to wildfires when it's dry.
