County Judge lifts burn ban


Hays County Judge Bert Cobb has lifted the burn ban on outdoor burning in the unincorporated areas of Hays County.

In a Hays County press release Monday, the county cautions those planning to burn outdoors to be mindful of wind conditions and to pause burning if winds are expected to be high. Fires should never be unattended and a water source should be available nearby.

Hays County is asking property owners who plan to burn to contact the Hays County Emergency Communications Office at 512-393-7896, their local fire department and surrounding neighbors.

More information about outdoor burning is available at www.co.hays.tx.us, select Fire Marshal under the Law Enforcement dropdown.
