Hunt County remains under "moderate" fire danger today

GREENVILLE — Hunt County remains under "moderate" fire danger conditions today, due to the lingering drought, according to the Texas A&M Forest Service.

The county was also listed under moderate fire danger conditions Monday, when several large fires were reported to have ignited across the county, including a three-alarm fire in the Cash area along County Road 3510.

Fire officials are urging residents to use caution in any outdoor burning and in the use of any fireworks.

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

There are 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.
