TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Natchez Trace Parkway has lifted its campfire ban in Alabama and Tennessee.
The Parkway lifted its recent ban due to “recent rainfall and reduced fire danger.”
However, the campfire ban on Parkway property is still in effect in Mississippi.
Campers can still use charcoal grills and cooking stoves; however, the items should only be used in designated areas that are free from burnable fuels like dry grass, leaf litter and pine needles.
The Parkway wants campers to watch over their grills and stoves and fully extinguish them before leaving the site.
Similar warnings are in place for smokers.
The Parkway announced the campfire ban on Oct. 1.
The Natchez Trace Parkway spans from Natchez in south Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee. It runs through northwest Alabama.
The state of Mississippi remains under a state-wide burn ban, which Gov. Phil Bryant issued on Oct. 2.
