Burn ban in effect for Parker County

Following several days of fires and in the wake of high temperatures, winds and lack of recent rainfall, Parker County Judge Mark Riley on Monday enacted a seven-day ban on outdoor burning in unincorporated areas of Parker County.

A violation of the order, which runs now through 10 a.m. July 15, can result in a fine of up to $500.

Riley called for a special meeting of county commissioners at 9:30 a.m. Friday to consider extending the ban 30 days.
