County Commissioners rescinded Comal County’s burn ban today due to the almost one inch of rain earlier this week.
“We hope this gives some relief to those that need to burn,” said spokesperson Cary Zayas. “Please be safe and follow all Texas Commission on Environmental Quality rules.”
Wednesday, Fire Marshal Kory Klabunde on Facebook said the county’s Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) was 526 as opposed to Guadalupe County’s 526.
A burn ban is implemented with the KBDI reaches 500.
“Looking at the KBDI map and the current burn ban map, it is easy to see why we have continued to stay under a burn ban while others have been able to lift theirs. Hopefully this weekend’s predicted rain will happen, and we can get the burn ban off for a longer period of time.”
