WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Fire restrictions that had been in place for more than a month on the Navajo Nation now have been lifted.
Tribal officials say recent rain showers have reduced the danger of wildfires across the 27,000 square-mile reservation.
Those conducting ceremonies, branding livestock or burning personal possessions still have to get a burn permit from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Campfires in developed recreational areas are allowed without a permit.
