Travis County lifts burn ban

The Travis County Fire Marshal's Office has lifted the burn ban a couple weeks early. The ban had been scheduled to expire on March 9.

Even though the ban is lifted, officials urge people to continue to be cautious with any outdoor burning activity.

Open burning permits are required in some areas. Everyone conducting outdoor burning operations must contact their local fire department and obtain permission or a permit before conducting outdoor burning operations.

To burn materials safely, keep a way of extinguishing the fire nearby at all times and never leave the fire unattended. Burning is not allowed during windy conditions. 
 
If you have questions related to the burn ban or need assistance in determining which fire department you will need to notify, please contact the Travis County Fire Marshal’s Office at 512-854-4621.
