The National Weather Service warns that heat indices could climb to 108 degrees daily through Tuesday of next week.
As the summer temperatures continue to rise into the triple digits, the Harris county Commissioners’ Court has enacted restrictions on uncontained burning.
Harris County currently doesn’t have an outdoor burn ban, but these restrictions are precautionary measures. Here is a quote from a press release sent out of the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office:
“While this is a precautionary restriction and not a total burn ban, residents should not discount the growing fire risk in the county,” said Harris County Fire Marshal Mike Montgomery. “By taking protective measures now, we can reduce the risk of wildfires as we head into the late summer.”
Residents should report unattended fires immediately by calling 9-1-1. If someone is seen illegally burning, report them by calling the Harris County Fire Marshal at 281-999-2200. Violating the burn ban is a class C misdemeanor.To read the full press release, click here.
