Update: The fire advisory has been lifted for the County of Grande Prairie, along with the towns of Beaverlodge, Sexsmith and Wembley and the Village of Hythe.
Cooler temperatures and even more rain in the forecast has allowed Alberta Parks to lift the fire advisory for the Grande Prairie Forest Area.
The fire danger level remains moderate, just days after raising to high due to a long dry spell and gusting winds.
Fire permits may now be issued and are required to burn during fire season. Burning is not permitted when winds reach 12 km per hour or higher.
