BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, TX (KWES) - As a response to all the fire danger warnings, Big Bend National Park is putting a smoking ban in the Chisos Basin Campground.

The park already prohibits smoking on the Chisos Mountain trails, but, for now, smoking in the camping grounds will only be allowed at designated smoking areas.

The park says these measures will stay in effect until fire danger subsides.
