With the on-going drought and increasing fire danger over the next few days I thought it would be prudent to share the latest burn bans across Texas. Please keep in mind even if your area is not under a burn ban that weather conditions should play a huge role in your decision to do a controlled burn. For example: Tomorrow and Wednesday are going to be bad days to do a burn west of Highway 281 where Red Flag Warnings are in effect.
Here is the latest summary from the Texas Forest Service of burn bans in effect. It looks like two more were added earlier today that aren’t included on this map but are included in the text list below.
