Some of the fire bans that had been in place around Renfrew County during the dry second half of summer are being relaxed.

In Bonnechere Valley, for example, the fire department says campfires are now allowed, but open air burning is still NOT allowed.

Officials say you must check with the municipality where you are, to see if burning of any kind if allowed, or you'll be facing a fine that could be hundreds of dollars.
