Liberty County remains under a burn ban due to very dry conditions. There have been a number of fires during the last three days that have been caused by local residents igniting small fires that quickly became large fires, some over 200 acres.

Please adhere to the burn ban and tell your neighbors to do the same. These fires are very costly to you the taxpayer, and our volunteer firefighters are worn out and would appreciate your cooperation.

The non-emergency number for reporting burn ban violations is 936-336-4500 and of course the emergency number for reporting a fire is 911.
