BREWSTER COUNTY - Due to dry conditions, Brewster County Commissioners voted to put a burn ban in place for the next 90 days.

Under the ban, you can still bar-b-cue but it needs to be an enclosed cooking grill or pit.

Open pit fires are against the law.

Welding is allowed is but only under very strict guidelines.

Violating the burn ban could you cost you a $500 ticket or a trip to jail.
