Fireworks Ban Continues In Wichita County

Texas Governor Rick Perry has extended the fireworks ban in Wichita County, but the ban is not for as long as County Commissioners had wanted.
The fireworks ban was extended until 12:00am on October 28th.
Wichita County Judge Woody Gossom says Governor Perry's office did not give a reason for not extending the ban through January 3rd as they requested.
Judge Gossom says if conditions remain as they are, then on October 28th Wichita County Commissioners will ask for another extension.
