Hey kids, it’s no time to play with fire. Erath County officials have issued a burn ban.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE

Put down the lighter and forget about setting that pile of brush on fire, kids.

No one will be setting anything ablaze for at least the next week.

With no rain in sight, Erath County officials issued a burn ban on Wednesday good for seven days.

Until then, if smoke signals start showing up in your pasture, you could get slapped with a Class C misdemeanor, setting you back a cool (no pun intended) 500 bucks.

Drop me a line and let me know what you think.
