With Travis County receiving several inches of rain in the last 24 hours, a burn ban for the county is no longer in effect.
Travis County Fire Marshal Hershel Lee lifted the burn ban for the region today. It was initially scheduled to last until Oct. 3. The lift will be in effect until at least Sept. 18, when the county commissioners court will consider the ban once more.
Officials still remind citizens to abide by state regulations when burning any materials outdoors. You can find more information on the fire marshall’s website.
