WARD COUNTY - With wildfire season just over the horizon, Ward County is taking steps to prepare.

Ward County Judge Greg Holly confirmed to NewsWest 9 that the Ward County Commissioners approved keeping the burn ban going at their last meeting.

Ward County has no surface water sources and relies completely on their groundwater to douse any fires that spark up.

Officials said keeping that burn ban going keeps the community's risk for fires down.
