Burn Ban Status




A Burn Ban has been issued for Harrison County along with the City of Marshall effective today July 2, 2018. The decision was made to issue the burn ban today due to dry conditions combined with the elevated temperatures in our area. The Marshall Fire Department has had an increase in reported grass and brush fires due to these conditions.

A Burn Permit is required for burning within the city limits of Marshall under normal conditions. However, the Marshall Fire Department will not be issuing any Burn Permits until the current Burn Ban has been lifted. For residents within the city that have obtained a valid burn permit prior to this ban may receive an extension once the ban has been lifted. To receive this extension, residents will need to bring their permit to the Central Fire station, located at 601 S. Grove St.

Officials will continue to monitor drought conditions and issue updates as conditions warrant. Area residents are urged to comply with the ban. You can find current information on the burn ban status by visiting the city of Marshall website at http://www.marshalltexas.net/departments/fire/burn-ban or the Marshall Fire Department’s Facebook page.
