Burn Ban in Effect in Presidio County

PRESIDIO COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Presidio County is now under a burn ban.

It's all because of the drought conditions that have plagued the area.

County officials say people may not light campfires or cook on a barbecue pit.

Since July fourth is around the corner and a burn ban is in place, some fireworks will not be allowed.

Those include skyrockets with sticks and missiles with fins.

If you get caught, you could face a hefty fine of up to $500.

The burn ban is in place for the next 90 days.
