Moderate fire danger again today

GREENVILLE — Although Hunt County is not currently under a ban on outdoor burning, fire officials are urging residents to use caution in the use of any fireworks, due to the dry conditions.

The use of fireworks is illegal inside the City of Greenville, as well as inside all of the incorporated cities within Hunt County. However, their use is permitted in the unincorporated areas.



The Texas A&M Forest Service has again listed Hunt County under a "moderate" threat of fire danger conditions today.

There are still certain restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater than 23 mph. Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
