Nacogdoches Co. lifts burn ban

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches County has lifted its county-wide burn ban. As a result, there are no longer any Deep East Texas counties that still have burn bans in effect.

The Nacogdoches County Commissioners Court met Friday morning to discuss lifting the burn ban, and they voted to approve the cancelation of the burn ban, which was the sole thing on their agenda.

Angelina County Judge Wes Suiter issued a proclamation lifting the burn ban in his county Wednesday morning. The ban's removal was effective immediately.

In the proclamation, Suiter wrote, "the County County of Angelina County has determined that circumstances present in all or part of the county no longer creates a public safety hazard that would be exacerbated by outdoor burning."

As a result of the burn ban being lifted, all outdoor burning of trash/brush or open camp fires is being allowed again.

The other Deep East Texas counties which have lifted their burn bans include Houston, Newton, Polk, San Augustine, Sabine, Trinity, and Tyler counties.
