On Aug. 15, Travis County commissioners extended the burn ban for unincorporated territories through Sept. 20.

Travis County Fire Marshal Tony Callaway said due to a lack of moisture in the soil and low humidity the fire risk continues to be high.

Callaway said as wind conditions are starting to pick up, the risk will be even greater.

“Our community has done a great job, and we ask that they continue to avoid activities that cause sparks,” Callaway said.

The National Weather service issued a red flag warning for Travis County.
