EAST TEXAS - Much of East Texas has been put under a Burn Ban due to the hot and dry conditions across East Texas. The following counties are currently under a Burn Ban:
Harrison, Panola, Rusk, Nacogdoches, Shelby, San Augustine, Sabine, Newton, Jasper, Tyler, Polk, Trinity, Houston, Cherokee and Anderson.
The next few days feature only the slim chances of wet weather, and with the warm temperatures and increasing winds, the chances for brush fires is increasing. We highly recommend not doing any burning outdoors in any county in East Texas due to the fact that it is so dry.
