by Jessica Cervantez

If Angelina County does not see a lot of rain in the near future, a burn ban will be issued.

The county has seen some rain, but it is still dry. So, now, the county has issued a voluntary burn ban.

Angelina County Judge Joe Berry said, "We're going to ask people to voluntarily curtail any outside burning and hopefully, by the weekend on in the near future we will get rain."

The mandatory burn ban could be issued as soon as next week.
