Rain Will Not Lift Burn Ban

The dry spell may finally be over but the fire danger is not. Deputy State Fire Marshall Kelly Vandygriff says, "We're in as much danger today as we were a week ago because of the high winds and the dead grass."

Over the weekend, nearly an inch and a half of rain fell in Lubbock. Some areas of the South Plains got two inches. But despite all that, Vandygriff says the fire ban will not be lifted.
