ANDREWS COUNTY - Andrews County won't be ringing the New Year with a bang this year.

On Friday morning, Andrews County Judge Richard Dolgener signed a local disaster declaration banning several types of outdoor burning and all fireworks.

In the ban, Dolgener asks all outside burning, except some forms of welding, to stop.

The ban also calls for an all-out ban on the use and sale of all fireworks in the County.

Currently, the ban lasts for seven days unless the declaration is extended by Governor Perry.
