HOUSTON COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Due to recent rainfall, Houston County's burn ban has been lifted Sunday.

Houston County Judge Erin Ford says that because of the five inches of rainfall over the weekend, it is enough to lift the current burn ban.

Despite most of East Texas receiving beneficial rainfall, unless official word is received from county officials, the burn bans are still in place.

We will keep you updated on any further notifications of lifted burn bans.
