BRYAN, TEXAS — The Commissioners Court has ruled that a drought condition currently exists in Brazos County.

Providing a real safety hazard, local officials have now prohibited the burning of any combustible materials outside of an enclosure meant to contain all flames, and/or sparks. This also applies to ordering others to do so for you.

However, exceptions for some activities such as welding and outdoor cooking exist, so long as they follow the added safety precautions.
