Burn Ban Lifted For Travis County
The burn ban for Travis County was lifted Wednesday afternoon after significant rainfall this week brought some relief from the continued drought.
It was previously scheduled to end on Feb. 6.
Fire Marshal Hershel Lee says you should still contact your local fire department before conducting outdoor burning in the unincorporated areas of Travis County. To burn materials safely, keep a means of extinguishing the fire nearby at all times and never leave the fire unattended. Burning is not allowed during windy conditions.
Travis County commissioners will consider another burn ban at their next meeting on Jan. 15.
If you have questions related to the burn ban or need assistance in determining which fire department you will need to notify, you can contact the Travis County Fire Marshal’s Office at 512-854-4621.
