HOWARD COUNTY - Recent rains also prompted Howard County Commissioners to lift their burn ban.

Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan gave the go ahead.

The ban was put back into place a few weeks ago after a 400 acre grass fire ignited, just north of Big Spring.

But since then, there's been a significant amount of rain and property owners have been asked to have controlled burns to get rid of dry brush before the fall and winter months.
