The cantons of Vaud, Fribourg and Neuchâtel have all lifted their fire bans after recent rain reduced the risks. The fire risk level has now fallen to level 3 on a scale from 1 to a maximum risk level of 5. This means fireworks and barbeques near forests are permitted. A level 3 risk still requires prudence and bans fires during high winds. Restrictions on water usage still remain in place in many communes.
Les Barbeques sont de nouveau autorisés (20 Minutes – in French)
