BILLINGS- Yellowstone County commissioners rescinded Tuesday their countywide burn ban and stage one fire restrictions.

The action means that residents in Yellowstone County can start burning with an approved permit from the county fire warden’s online system.

The ban and restrictions were enacted Aug. 7. In their resolution, commissioners stated they’re allowing burning again after cooler temperatures and rainfall reduced fire hazards.
