Due to rain and cooler temperatures, the Baker City Fire Department is easing, but not completely eliminating, fire restrictions that have been in place for much of the summer.

Starting at midnight tonight (Monday), campfires for cooking purposes only will be allowed, as will burn barrels. Open burning of yard waste will still be prohibited, however, Fire Chief John Clark said.
