Texas County OK Burn Ban Lifted

KSCB News - April 25, 2016 3:56 pm

At the Texas County Commissioners meeting on Monday morning, Commissioners lifted the county wide burn ban. This allows people that have property outside community city limits that need to burn to do so. “It is important that the public realizes what occurs to put a burn ban in place and what occurs to remove the ban”, said Guymon Assistant Fire Chief Grant Wadley. Over the past week, significant rainfall has occurred in the majority of the Texas County which as decreased the extreme fire danger along with higher humidity levels. Increasing forecast of cooler weather and precipitation also contributed to lifting the burn ban.
