Burn Bans Still In Effect Throughout East Texas

In spite of recent rains, burn bans remain in effect in most East Texas counties. Only six counties in our area are allowing burning at this time. Those are: Franklin, Morris, Marion, Cass, Panola and Shelby. Officials issued a number of citations to burn ban violators yesterday in Gregg county.

Authorities say the heavy rains had some people thinking the showers ended the danger. But fire marshals say that prevailing winds will quickly bring dry conditions again.
