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.
