Washington County Enacts Burn Ban

Washington County is the latest to join area counties enacting burn bans.

Commissioners held an emergency meeting on Wednesday and unanimously voted to prohibit outdoor burning for 90 days unless the weather changes.

Officials say the ban went into effect immediately due to high winds and numerous recent grass fires.

Burn bans are also in effect in Brazos and Robertson counties.
