GATESVILLE — Another dousing of light rain prompted Coryell County Judge John Firth to lift the ban on outdoor burning until sunset Sunday.

On March 24, the Coryell County Commissioners Court voted to lift the burn ban until March 31 after light rain reduced the wildfire danger.

Firth said lifting the ban is intended “to mitigate future wildfires by burning off dead vegetation during this low-threat window following the rains.”

Before burning, landowners should notify the sheriff’s office at 254-865-7201.
