Travis County burn ban has been lifted

Travis County lifts burn ban

With the rainfall and the decrease in the risk of wildfire, Commissioners Court has lifted the burn ban for Travis County that was scheduled to end on May 28, 2014.

Open burning permits are required in some ESDs. Everyone conducting outdoor burning operations must contact their local fire department and obtain permission or a permit before conducting outdoor burning operations.

To burn materials safely, keep a means of extinguishing the fire nearby at all times and never leave the fire unattended. Burning is not allowed during windy conditions.

Please be cautious with any outdoor burning activity. Outdoor burning must be conducted under state regulations found in Texas Administrative Code Section 30 TAC 111.219 or summarized on the Travis County Fire Marshal’s website at

If you have questions related to the burn ban or need assistance in determining which fire department you will need to notify, please contact the Travis County Fire Marshal’s Office at 512-854-4621.

On Tuesday, May 20, the commissioners will again consider and take appropriate action on a new order concerning outdoor burning in the unincorporated areas of Travis County.
