Burn Ban and Fireworks

“BURN BAN — Wise County commissioners unanimously approved a burn ban during Monday’s session. Fire marshal Paul Cunningham recommended the ban because of the lack of rain over the past several months. Cunningham warned residents against any outside burning and issued a special caution for anyone using fireworks. “Residents must understand that they are liable if a fire caused by fireworks gets off their property,” Cunningham said. “We will file charges for anyone who ignores the burn ban.” The county’s burn ban is in effect for the next 90 days. Meanwhile, the U.S. Forest Service also prohibited campfires in the LBJ National Grasslands until further notice, said Ranger Jim Crooks of the Decatur office.”
