GATESVILLE — The Coryell County Commissioners Court on Monday reinstated a burn ban effective at sunset Monday night.

The court found circumstances were present in all or part of the unincorporated areas of the county that could create a public safety hazard exacerbated by outdoor burning.

Outdoor burning of all substances is prohibited for 90 days from the time the ban went into effect, unless terminated earlier based on a determination that a public safety hazard no longer exists.

The ban does not prohibit outdoor burning activities related to public health and safety for firefighter training; public utility, natural gas pipeline or mining operations; planting or harvesting agricultural crops; controlled burns conducted by certified burn managers; welding with a spotter with sufficient water sources available; or burning domestic waste in a barrel when using a screen with no larger than 3/8 inch holes.

Violating the order is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.
