HOWARD COUNTY - The recent rain in Howard County has Commissioners looking at possibly lifting the current burn ban.

The item is on the agenda for Monday's meeting.

The ban was re-instated back in July.

Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan tells NewsWest 9 with all the rain, the area could safely go without a burn ban until October or November.

Sullivan also says this is the greenest growth he's seen in seven years.
