Burn Ban In Effect for Hopkins County

August 28, 2023 – The Hopkins County Commissioner’s Court voted to enact a burn ban for Hopkins County effective immediately. No outdoor burning of any kind will be allowed during the ban. The dry conditions and lack of rain have elevated drought conditions across the State of Texas and few counties are left without burn bans. Hopkins County recently entered the “Abnormally Dry” level on the Texas Drought Monitor with no relief in sight. All but 10 counties in the panhandle are now listed at some level of drought in Texas The ban will stay in effect until such time as conditions improve.
