Open fires have been banned in Ector County.

A 90 day burn ban is now in effect after Monday morning's County Commissioner's meeting.

Welding is still allowed, and so is trash burning as long as you use a screen over the burn barrel.

Ector joins Howard and Midland County, who implemented burn bans in the last two weeks.
