GREENVILLE — Hunt County is again under a "very high" danger of fires today, according to the Texas Forest Service, due to the increasing drought conditions.
Sunny skies are expected today, with a high near 93. and a southeast wind at 10 to 15 mph.
Hunt County is not currently under a ban on outdoor burning, but there are limitations in place for anyone conducting a controlled burn.
The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater then 23 mph. Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to: rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
