2012 News Releases

Tarrant County is Under a Ban on Outdoor Burning

 
Today, December 4, 2012 the Tarrant County Commissionerís Court approved an Outdoor Burning Ban for Tarrant County. 
 
This Outdoor Burning Ban will be in place for the next 90 days. 
 
Tarrant County is under imminent threat of severe damage, injury, or loss of life or property resulting from the threat of wildfires due to the dry grass conditions and gusty winds that occur during the winter season; therefore, all outdoor burning in Tarrant County is PROHIBITED.
 
A violation of the Court Order Prohibiting Outdoor Burning is a class C Misdemeanor and punishable of a fine up to $500.00.
 
We urge all residents of Tarrant County to help us during this time.
 
For our residents in the rural areas, we strongly suggest that you make sure that you keep an area of about 30 feet mowed around your home and out buildings to prevent a fire from reaching your structures.
 
We encourage all Tarrant County residents to BE SAFE.
 
Randy Renois
Tarrant County Fire Marshal
