Elevated fire danger for some portions of North Texas today

GREENVILLE — Some areas of North Texas are expected to see weather conditions supportive of high grass fire danger this afternoon. Afternoon relative humidity is expected to fall to 20 percent or slightly below for these locations.

Areas to the northwest of Hunt County, north of Dallas/Fort Worth and toward Sherman, will see the greatest risk.

There are significant drought conditions present in Hunt County as well.

Hunt County has not been under a burn ban since August 28.

However, 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 then 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.
