COMAL COUNTY BURN BAN OFF
Saturday September 8, 2018 11:00 a.m.

 Outdoor burning in unincorporated Comal County is once again allowed after County Judge Sherman Krause lifted the burn ban. The Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI), which measures soil dryness, dropped below 500, the threshold at which the burn bans are typically implemented.

“Recent rains provided enough moisture to make outdoor burning safer in most areas of the county,” said Comal County Fire Marshal Kory Klabunde. “However, parts of the county, especially in the east, are still very dry, so please use caution and keep a water source nearby if setting a controlled fire.”

 More information is available on the Fire Marshal Office’s webpage, mycomalcounty.com/Fire_Marshal.htm.
 Please check Fire Marshall's burn information before any outdoor burning in Comal County.
