Dry Conditions, Burn Bans Prevail

In response to the dry conditions, Walker, Trinity and Montgomery Counties joined the growing list of places enacting a burn ban. That makes 181 counties out of 254 in Texas to have temporarily outlawed burning.

Waller County is the lone Brazos Valley county without a ban.

Local firefighters dealt with a few fires across the region Friday. Grimes, Walker and Burleson Counties all reported multiple minor fires.
