After more than a month the fire ban has been lifted in Greater Sudbury.

The fire ban was issued on July 6th by the city and its been hot and dry ever since.

The city sent out a release this morning saying while the ban is lifted the fire hazard remains high and they will monitor the situation closely and inform the public if the ban is reinstated.

The fire ban has also been lifted for Markstay and Warren but is still in place for Little Current, Manitoulin Island and French River.
