NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – The Comal County Commissioners Court has voted to extend a burn ban and continue to outlaw all outdoor burning in the county for another 90 days.
The burn ban extension will start at 6 a.m. on Aug. 10
The extension recommendation came from the Comal County Fire Marshal Kory Klabunde because of the extreme drought conditions.
“There have been some large fires fairly close to us recently, and I ask our citizens and visitors to exercise extreme caution to prevent fires in Comal County,” Klabunde said. “We are in a severe dry and dangerous situation. Please do your part to protect our county and your and your neighbor’s property.”
