ANDREWS COUNTY - Recent rainfall has prompted a long-awaited change in Andrews County.

Earlier this week, Andrews County Commissioners decided to rescind one of the longest continuous burn bans in years.

The county has been under burning restrictions since November 2010 due to an extreme lack of moisture.

Rainfall this month and a decent amount of moisture in 2012 led the Commissioners to their decision.
