BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has lifted a burn ban on the Oahe Wildlife Management Area south of Bismarck-Mandan.

Officials prohibited open burning earlier this spring because of the potential for wildfires in the heavily wooded recreation area along the Missouri River. Game and Fish has now lifted the burn ban on property it manages, though any county burn restrictions will still apply.

The Oahe Wildlife Management Area covers more than 25 square miles in Burleigh, Emmons, and Morton counties. The area is popular among anglers, campers and other outdoor recreationists.
