Judge Enacts Emergency Burn Ban

Monday afternoon, Lee County Judge Paul Fischer enacted an emergency burn ban that will be in effect until the next commissioners court meeting, when the commissioners will vote on whether or not to impose it indefinitely.

Judge Fischer had talked to several fire departments throughout the county, which recommended imposing the ban due to the fire danger index, which is at 537 for Lee County right now. A burn ban is generally recommended when the index reaches 500 or higher.
