Burn ban rescinded

Monday, November 7, 2022 by Tai Moses

Travis County Fire Marshal Tony Callaway has lifted the burn ban for the unincorporated areas of Travis County, explaining that, with “the rain we received earlier this week and adequate humidity levels, the conditions have improved enough to lift the burn ban. Although the burn ban has been lifted, I encourage the public to be careful and always be aware of fire dangers when conducting outdoor burning.” Residents planning to conduct any outdoor burning should brush up on the regulations for outdoor burning and contact their local fire department. And of course, always have water nearby.
