Howard County Asking Residents to Clear Excess Brush

BIG SPRING - The fire danger is still a threat to West Texas, so Howard County Commissioners are asking everyone to pitch in and help prevent fires from spreading.

Homeowners are asked to keep their property clear of brush. People have already called commissioners to complain about their neighbors' lots.

Extra brush on properties isn't only an eyesore, it's also perfect fuel for a fire. The commissioners are asking people to keep their grass cut low and to clear any debris from yards.
