County burn ban now in effect

Thursday, May 12, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Facing unseasonably hot conditions and a long stretch of dry weather on the horizon, the Travis County Commissioners Court issued a burn ban yesterday. The ban, which went into effect May 11, prohibits outdoor fires and engaging in activities that could allow flames and sparks to start fires. Find more information about what is and is not allowed under a burn ban on the county website.
