It looks like the burn ban is still off.
The decision to keep the burn ban lifted was unanimous at Palo Pinto County Commissioner's Court on Monday.
"The winds look OK, and we got an inch and a half of rain, so we're kind of right on the line," said Keiffer Harwell Jr., Palo Pinto County Fire Marshal and Emergency Management Services employee. "Let's give it a day or two. We're supposed to get rain Saturday. Stuff is still dry and dead."
The burn ban, which was lifted Sept. 20, might be reinforced in a few days if the humidity falls or if dry conditions worsen.
"We might put it back on in a few days, it really depends on day-by-day," Harwell Jr. said.
