Polk County rescinds burn ban

Livingston, Texas (KTRE) -After the April tornadoes damaged over 300 homes in Polk County a burn ban was put in place.

The excessive amount of debris was hauled away by contractors, rather than burned, to allow county emergency management to focus on rebuilding and recovery.

The burn ban was lifted, at the county commissioners’ meeting on Tuesday.
