High fire danger again today, burn ban remains in effect

GREENVILLE — The Texas A&M Forest Service has again listed Hunt County under a "high" fire danger level today, due to the severe drought conditions and chances for gusty winds today.

A ban on outdoor burning remains in effect for Hunt County. Under the ban no outdoor burning is permitted in the unincorporated areas of the county, including the burning of household garbage. This order does not restrict the outdoor use of welding, cutting torches and other similar tools, provided a separate individual is present to observe for fires and sparks and to have some type of fire extinguisher present. The order does not prohibit outdoor cooking but it does restrict the cooking activities to an enclosed apparatus, designed for cooking purposes.
