Burn Bans Issued Tuesday In Brazos And Robertson Counties

Brazos and Robertson County commissioners enacted burn bans Tuesday morning for areas outside city limits.

Brazos County emergency management deputy director Jason Ware said the recommendation came from three of the four volunteer fire department chiefs and the latest scores on a drought index used to measure wildfire danger.

When asked why one of four volunteer fire departments did not support the ban, Ware said it might be as simple as that department not responding to many wildfires.

The burn ban is for 90 days, unless there is enough rain for the county judge to end it early.
