The region was under a Fire Watch Weather Area due to excessive heat, lack of rain and high winds late last month.

Because of those conditions, River Falls and many surrounding towns implemented a fire ban immediately.

During this ban, open fires are prohibited, including recreational fires.

Besides River Falls, these cities and towns also have implemented the ban: Troy, Clifton, River Falls (town), Kinnickinnic, Pleasant Valley, Roberts and Hudson.
