Cedar Creek Lake counties issue burn bans

by




Burn bans are now in effect in the Cedar Creek Lake area, prohibiting outside fires because of drought conditions.

Kaufman County Commissioners Court enacted a 45-day burn ban Sept. 18, 2017, and Henderson County issued a 14-day ban on Sept. 26. County officials followed the recommendation of Texas Forest Service officials to enact the bans after no measurable rain fell during a month’s time.

The bans could be extended if the drought continues.

In Texas, local governments are empowered to take action on the behalf of those they serve. When drought conditions exist, a burn ban can be put in place by a county judge or county commissioners court prohibiting or restricting outdoor banning for public safety.

Some exceptions apply to burn bans for activities such as firefighter training. The County Fire Marshal’s office can provide more information.
