Midland County commissioners chose to extend the county burn ban through mid-July. It’s possible that the county commissioners may reconsider the ban before Independence Day though. They may reconsider midway through June. This burn ban could mean that rockets and fireworks with fins might be off the table this year over worries of grass fires. The extension followed the recommendation from the Midland County fire marshal.  He explained that if Midland sees rain, they can cancel the burn ban at any time.

The ban, which was implemented in March, isn’t an all out burn ban. So, many summer festivities can still proceed. Residents can still cook outside in approved containers. If you’re ever unsure of the status of a burn ban in the State of Texas, keep in mind: The Texas Forest Service maintains a list of all burn bans and keeps it updated. You can find that online here.
