Dry weather may lead to burn ban

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Property owners are discouraged from doing any outside burning. Dry weather has created a high fire danger.   Grass and wood fires are keeping firefighters busy. The situation is so bad that Nacogdoches County commissioners will consider adopting a burn ban on Tuesday. In the meantime, they ask for a voluntary compliance. County Judge Joe English warned,  " It is very dry and I encourage people at this point now not to be burning because it is so dry. I think we have 30% chance of rain today and it does not look like we are going to get that, so it's going to continue to be dry. "   Firefighters worked a 16 acre fire in Angelina County this morning. Last week Nacogdoches County firefighters were called to 12 fires.
