Tarrant County is now under a ban on outdoor burning

The Tarrant County Commissioner’s Court approved an outdoor burning ban for Tarrant County on Oct.1. All outdoor burning in Tarrant County is prohibited for the next 90 days.

The unincorporated areas of Tarrant County have been determined to be under drought conditions by the Texas A&M Forest Service. A string of 100-plus-degree days and lack of sufficient rainfall has created the potential for wildfires. These conditions prompted the Tarrant County fire marshal to request the ban on outdoor burning to protect lives and properties of Tarrant County residents.

A violation is a class C misdemeanor punishable with a fine up to $500.
