White Settlement, other areas, under burn ban


The City of White Settlement along with other areas in North Texas issued a burn ban on Monday of this week. It includes any outdoor burning of firepits or trash as well as any outdoor welding. Currently, it is ok to grill with propane gas.

“It is just so dry right now,” said Fire Marshall R.J. Schwartz. “We are just asking everyone to be careful.”

On non-red flag days, charcoal grilling or manufactured smokers may be used.
