Grayson County Commissioners Renew Burn Ban

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- Outdoor burning remains prohibited in Grayson County through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

At a meeting on Tuesday morning, county commissioners voted to renew the burn ban for another week.

County Fire Marshal Kevin Walton says the drought index currently stands at 611. The commissioners usually institute a burn ban whenever the index is above 600. The ban does not apply to outdoor grilling or cooking.
