Ector County Commissioners vote to lift burn ban


ECTOR COUNTY, Texas (Nexstar)- Ector County Commissioners voted Tuesday to lift the burn ban within the county. 

A burn ban was established in late March restricting outdoor burning. 

Recent rainfall has improved conditions enough that Commissioners felt comfortable lifting the ban; however, they say the community should remain vigilant with any outdoor burning, especially as the Fourth of July nears.
