Cherokee Co. officials declare burn ban

CHEROKEE COUNTY, TX - Cherokee County officials have declared a burn ban because of extreme fire danger due to lack of rainfall.

Dry conditions around the E. Texas area pose a great threat of dangerous fast moving wildfires that endanger lives and properties. Weather forecasts for the E. Texas area show no significant amount of rainfall that would change these dry conditions.

The burn ban is in effect until further notice from Cherokee County authorities.
