Try Not to Burn

Even though Nacogdoches County is not under a burn ban right now, you should be careful if you decide to burn.

Nacogdoches is one of several areas where firefighters have been keeping busy this week, putting out grass fires. The dry grass makes it easy for flames to spread quickly.

Dale Birdwell, with the Nacogdoches Fire Department, said, "This time of year, there's a lot vegetation still, and even with rain, we're still real far behind on what little rain we have."

Just a reminder, it is illegal to set off fireworks in the city limits.
