FORT BEND COUNTY ISSUES BURN BAN

Posted: June 22, 2022All Posts

The Fort Bend County Commissioners Court has issued a burn ban for all unincorporated areas of Fort Bend County due to the high risk of fire danger caused by drought conditions and record-high temperatures.

The ban limits the use of open flames which prohibits the burning of trash, campfires, burn barrels, and other open flame devices that can ignite combustible materials and result in personal injury, property damage, and loss of life.

This ban is effective as of 5 pm on June 21, 2022, and will remain in effect until rescinded by the County Judge.
