Hays County Judge Bert Cobb, MD, and Fire Marshal Mark Chambers have announced a temporary lift of the burn ban due to rain and some greening of grass due to recent showers. The burn ban is lifted immediately and is expected to last until authorities determine that conditions warrant reinstating it. The rain is expected to be a temporary relief, and that dry conditions will return quickly.
Chambers cautioned those who decide to burn to be extremely
cautious, as there is still potential for fires to easily get out of control.
“Never leave a fire unattended, even for a few minutes,” he said. “Always keep a
source of water close at hand.”
