Burns Bans still active

Northeast Texas – Burn bans are still active throughout the area. Several area counties lifted burn bans temporarily, but had their firefighters called out to numerous grass fires. The entire State of Texas and northeast Texas in particular, is experiencing the worst drought conditions in years. In Lamar County, a burn ban was lifted, but reinstated just four days later after 12 wild fires were reported. Burn bans are on throughout Texas, and include Hunt, Lamar, Hopkins, Delta, and Fannin Counties.
