Commissioners Court puts Hays County under burn ban


Under the advisement of Hays County Fire Marshal Mark Chambers, the Hays County Commissioners Court enacted a countywide burn ban effective Monday, officials say.

The burn ban is due to drying conditions and possible high wind days, which could cause serious fires, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office says.

Under the ban, all outdoor trash and debris burning is restricted in the county. Also, extreme caution should be used with any required vocational fire source activity, such as welding. Be sure to always have an ample supply of extinguishing materials for emergencies, officials say

Surrounding counties also under burn bans include Travis, Comal, Blanco and Caldwell. The burn ban will remain in effect until further notice of the court. For any further questions contact the Hays County Fire Marshal’s Office.
