While there is no fire ban in effect in the City of Battleford, Mayor Ames Leslie is asking residents to make sure they follow the rules to keep everyone safe. He posted on his Facebook page a reminder to people that to start a fire in their backyard, they need an approved fire apparatus and a City Hall-approved fireplace permit.

“Don’t be that guy and ruin it for all of us,” Leslie said.
