TRINITY COUNTY SHERIFF SERIOUS ABOUT BURN BAN

A burn ban is still in full effect for all of Trinity County.
A man was burning logs and limbs today then his fire jumped property lines burning the neighbor’s buildings. The man has been arrested and is now facing felony charges for ignoring the burn ban and recklessly causing the destruction of another.
Texas Penal Code – PENAL § 28.02. Arson
