Brazoria County 90-day burn ban in effect


Brazoria County’s burn ban went into effect Sept. 11. The ban is due to dry conditions in the county and increasing concern for wildfires, according to a press release from the county.

“Burn bans are put into effect for the safety, health and welfare of our citizens in times of drought,” Brazoria County Judge Matt Sebesta said in a written statement.

The burn ban will last for 90 days. During this time, outdoor burning is prohibited in the unincorporated areas of the county. Violations are constituted by the burning of something flammable outside of an enclosed space, including the use of open-flame fire pits. Use of barbecue pits and grills is allowed, according to a press release from the county.
