Wichita Co. Commissioners Decided Not To Reinstate Burn Ban

Wichita County commissioners did not reinstate the county's burn ban Tuesday morning.

Commissioners decided to let the burn ban end.

Commissioners said because of the recent rainfall, they want to give a window of opportunity for burning while the ground was still wet.

They said the burn ban could be reinstated again soon if dry weather returns.

Judge Woody Gossom said he will also ask commissioners to rescind the Declaration of Disaster and fireworks ban.

He said the new order could come as early as this week.
