TEXAS, USA — Two area counties lifted burn bans after heavy rain came through the area Wednesday night.
Both McLennan and Coryell counties lifted their burn bans Thursday afternoon.
McLennan County Judge Scott Felton lifted the order citing the substantial rainfall the county received. Even then, Felton urged residents to use "extreme caution" when engaging in outdoor burning activities.
The ban was in effect for about three weeks after the McLennan County Commissioners Court adopted it on Sept. 21.
Coryell County Judge Robert Miller issued the order lifting the ban just more than two weeks after it was passed by the Coryell County Commissioners Court on Sept. 28.
