GREENVILLE — The Texas A&M Fire Service has again listed Hunt County under a "high" fire danger level today, due to the continued severe drought conditions and gusty winds.
High temperatures are expected to get close to, or reach, the triple digits the next few days, with a slight chance of showers possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
There is no current burn ban in place in Hunt County, although are restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is permissible, but 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.
