The Texas Forest Service has listed Hunt County and most of Northeast Texas under "moderate" fire danger conditions today, due to the high winds.

Hunt County is not currently under a burn ban, although 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.
