Collin County and Denton County Issue Burn Bans

Collin County and Denton County officials issued burn bans this week.  Please see the specific county information at the links below. 

COLLIN COUNTY
90-day outdoor burn ban issued for unincorporated Collin County
(July 13, 2022) The Collin County Commissioners Court on Monday approved an outdoor burn ban for unincorporated areas of Collin County effective July 11, 2022, due to extremely dry conditions in rural areas. The 90- ban will remain in effect until Oct. 9, 2022, unless the Texas Forest Service or the Commissioners Court determines that it is no longer necessary. Read the complete press release. The full text of the outdoor burn ban is posted here.

DENTON COUNTY
Denton County Issues Mandatory Burn Ban
(July 13, 2022) Denton County Judge Andy Eads has instated a Local Disaster Declaration (PDF) for Threat of Wildland Fires Due to Dry Conditions in Denton County effective July 13, 2022. Denton County is now the 210th of 254 Texas Counties that has a burn ban in effect. 

Denton County Judge Andy Eads, in the interest of fire safety and fire prevention, is asking for the cooperation of all Denton County residents with respect to outdoor burning. High temperatures, high winds, low humidity, and dead/dormant vegetation have contributed to the risk of large and destructive wildfires. At risk are homes, valuable property, and lives. Denton County has experienced an increase in wildfires this season with several burning multiple acres. Read the complete press release.
