It rained, yet we are under a burn ban. Can I burn?
While periods of rain help to relieve conditions that create a burn ban, the fact that it has rained does not lift the ban. In accordance with Texas law, the ban is either on or off. Even though increased moisture and humidity help to reduce activity of fire, you must remember that unless vegetation is in the growing phase, the fuel still contains little to no moisture, contributing to increased fire danger. Our office monitors the conditions daily during the time burn bans are in place and can assure you they will be lifted when burning can be done safely.
