HOWARD COUNTY - While some counties are enacting burn bans, one county is lifting theirs.

The Howard County Volunteer Fire Department tells NewsWest 9, the current ban has been lifted.

The recent rains over the weekend helped ease conditions.

However, they say residents still need to notify the sheriff's office if you plan on doing a controlled burn.

They say that if you're fire spreads, you could be facing a fine.
