The Atascosa County Commissioners Court has approved a burn ban for the next 90 days, effective Aug. 7, during a special meeting of the commissioners Aug. 5.

Atascosa County Fire Marshal Chuck Garris said the Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) for the county was at a serious level of 547.

During a burn ban, burning of household trash is permitted during daylight hours and only in a screened burn barrel. Anyone caught violating the ban is subject to a $500 fine, and could be found civilly liable for property damage.

Wilson County does not have a burn ban in effect at this time.

However, due to the continued hot, dry conditions, this could change. Wilson County’s burn ban status can be found on this website, under the Burn Ban button on the home page.
