The Commissioners Court has approved a 90-day burn ban. Effective immediately (June 26, 2018), there can be no outside burning. Welding can be done as long as there is a water source and an assistant, or watcher. Fire Marshal Ray Wilson said the burn ban does not affect fireworks. “We had three grass fires last week in one day,” he said. “Conditions are getting really dry out here.”
