BURN BAN

BURN BAN in effect for Fort Bend County:

The Texas Forestry Service and Commissioners Court have reviewed the conditions that can create extreme fire danger and issues a Burn Ban on outside burning. A ban on outdoor burning helps prevent possibly disastrous wildfires from occurring.

Refrain from any outdoor burning and be mindful of the dry conditions.

State Law: The commissioners court voted to prohibit or restrict outdoor burning in general or outdoor burning of a particular substance in all or part of the unincorporated area of the county if:

(1) drought conditions have been determined to exist as provided by Subsection (b); or

(2) the commissioners court makes a finding that circumstances present in all or part of the unincorporated area create a public safety hazard that would be exacerbated by outdoor burning.
