Outdoor Burning Now OK as County Lifts Burn Ban

Comal County lifted the burn ban for unincorporated areas at 10 a.m. today.

Outdoor burning is allowed.

Fire Marshal Kory Klabunde warns residents that Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) rules still apply. Residents and visitors cannot legally burn in the state if wind speeds are predicted to be over 23 miles-per-hour during the active burn phase.

“Please be safe and remember you are legally responsible for any fire you light,” he said on Facebook.
