BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department is reminding people that they can’t possess or use fireworks on state wildlife management areas.

The areas are set aside to enhance wildlife production and provide outdoors opportunities including hunting and fishing. Officials say fireworks can disrupt wildlife and cause wildfires.

Meanwhile, Game and Fish is lifting the Tuesday-Wednesday no-camping restriction for the holiday week on wildlife management areas in western North Dakota and along Lake Sakakawea.

The restrictions are put in place to ensure the areas in the oil patch are available to hunters and anglers.

More information on wildlife management area regulations can be found on the Game and Fish website, at www.gf.nd.gov .
