Fire response crews at Cypress Hills are concerned about our recent hot, dry weather.

This week, a fire ban was put in place, allowing only camp stoves, barbecues and charcoal briquettes.

Bud Sabean is the forest protection manager for the park and says they haven't seen a significant rain since June 16. He adds that they need a good soaking before they can lift the ban.

Cypress Park continues to remain open, however visitors are reminded to exercise caution around the park.
