Burn Ban reinstated

Parmer County Judge Trey Ellis announced Wednesday that an Emergency Burn Ban for Parmer County has been reinstated effective immediately. Two commissioners and county fire departments recommended this move due to predicted extremely windy weather for the next few days. The ban will be on the agenda for the County Commissioners regular meeting on Monday.

A burn ban is exactly what the name implies -

no outside burning of any kind until the ban is lifted. Open burning at this time is considered extremely dangerous to people, buildings, trees and grasslands. Violations are serious, punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.
