NESPELEM The federal Environmental Protection Agency lifted the burn ban on the Colville Indian Reservation today
The ban was ordered on the reservation, as well as the Spokane and Yakama Indian reservations, in December due to stagnant air conditions.
Lifting of the ban means tribal members are allowed agricultural and outdoor burning, and camp and recreational fires.
Ceremonial and traditional fires were not included in the ban.
