WINKLER COUNTY - Recent rains aren't enough to end the burn ban in Winkler County.

After hearing from Kermit and Wink volunteer firefighters, County Commissioners voted to keep it.

The drought index shows the county to be in a dangerous zone.

The ban will last 90 days and if violated you could face a fine up to $500.
