Commissioners extend burn ban for 90 days

Posted: Updated:

With continuous drought and little rain received in the area, Lubbock County commissioners have extended the burn ban for another 90 days.

The heat wave that has swept most of the southern United States has definitely taken a toll on West Texas. Like always, the burn ban includes outdoor grilling and all open fires. Fireworks are prohibited, and caution with cigarette butts is encouraged.

For more information, please contact the Lubbock County Office of Emergency Management at (806) 775-1911.
