•Palo Pinto County remains under a burn ban, prohibiting trash fires and burning brush piles because of the county's drought conditions.
Although the ground has received some moisture recently, County Fire Marshall
Buddy Harwell said the conditions haven't changed much and the fuel is still dead and dormant and dry.
He said the county did well over the holidays without any grass or wildland fires. However, he added there were some house and structure fires and other situations unrelated to burning.
