County-wide burn ban back on

Posted: Thursday, December 19, 2019 7:00 am

Brewster County Commissioners Court held its regular meeting on Dec. 11, and commissioners agreed common sense goes a long way with the prevalence of campfires now that the dry season is in full swing.

Emergency Management Coordinator Stephanie Elmore recommended a county-wide burn ban, and commissioners approved. She said that any type of campfire would have to be contained within metal, concrete, or rock with a maximum height of 18 inches, and topped with a screen. Said Elmore, “In Terlingua, the Air BnBs have been asking what the rules and regulations are. With the holidays coming up and the dry weather, we want to be prepared for anything that is going to happen.”
