Burn ban issued for Panola County

PANOLA COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - PANOLA COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An outdoor burn ban has been placed on Panola County by the Commissioner's Court at the request of the Texas Forest Service (TFS). The Court adopted the order Monday morning.

The TFS says drought conditions would make burning hazardous at this time. The ban could last as long as 90 days unless, officials say, restrictions are ended earlier by the TFS.
