posted May 20, 2013, 7:24 AM by Robert Lee Volunteer Fire Dept
On May 15, 2013, Coke County Judge Pro-Tem, Troy Eugene Montgomery lifted the County Wide Burn Ban.  Due to recent rains he felt it could be lifted at this time.  However, He is asking that everyone take extreme precaution while burning.  If you are doing a control burn please call the Sheriff's office at 453-2717 to let them be aware that you will be burning.  If the rains do not continue and drought conditions worsen then the burn ban will be placed back in effect.  For current updates regarding the burn ban you may go to the Texas Forest Service Website.  Please call our office at 453-2641 if you have any questions
