County fire marshal lifts burn ban

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 by Tai Moses

With Central Texas experiencing cooler temps, elevated humidity and chances of rain on the horizon, Travis County Fire Marshal Tony Callaway has lifted the burn ban for the unincorporated areas of Travis County. The improved conditions signal a decrease in wildfire danger, though Callaway says, “We’ll continue to monitor the weather conditions.” Even with the burn ban rescinded, the fire marshal “urges extreme caution when burning outdoors. It is recommended residents have water nearby in case of a fire.”
