ECTOR COUNTY - A lack of rain forced Ector County to reinstate their burn ban.

County Commissioners lifted it for a few months but that was after some rainfall.

Now we've barely even seen a drop and things are drying out.

The ban is in place for the next 90 days.

That means you can't burn your trash or brush.

The only exception is barbecuing and commercial welding.
