Midland and Howard Counties Pass Burn Bans

Midland and Howard County officials have passed burn bans. The burn bans will go into effect for the next 90 days.

Ector County Commissioners did not pass a burn ban, but it was on the agenda for Monday.

Howard County Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan said his crews fought a fire Sunday afternoon that almost burned three homes.

The fire broke out in the Sand Springs area around 2:30 p.m. and took almost two hours to put out.
