NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Sun, dry weather, wind and dormant grass. The conditions are ripe for grass fires to break out even if it has been raining recently. In fact, the rain may have complicated things.
Tarrant County Fire Marshal Randy Renois is quick to point out there is still a lot of dormant brush above the green grass. And that presents a new problem.
He says the wind can quickly spread the flames. But, he adds, the muddy fields could make it tough to get fire fighting gear to the fire.
KRLD’s L.P. Phillips Reports:
Currently, only Denton County has a burn ban in place. It’s a modified ban that changes on a day-by-day basis.
