Commissioners are adding to their present burn ban to include some fireworks.

County Judge Mark Barr tells NewsWest Nine that bottle rockets won't be allowed through January, or any fireworks with fins, like the larger type rockets.

Commissioners approved the present burn ban back in November, and the fireworks additions will be illegal through January.

On another matter, Barr says election officials are moving the Precinct three voting location from Goliad Middle School to the First Baptist Church.

The next voting period is during the March primary.
