Add Dickens County to list of local burn bans

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week, using an official Texas Forest Service map, KCBD NewsChannel 11 showed you how a majority of Texas counties are now under a burn ban.

Now we can one more local county to the list.  Monday we got word that Dickens County was added to the state's official burn ban map.

Lubbock is not under a burn ban but most of its neighbors are.   Last week during warm and windy weather a series of wildfires burned more than 5,000 acres in Lamb, Hale, and Floyd counties.
