MONTGOMERY COUNTY NOT CURRENTLY UNDER BURN BAN HOWEVER 144 TEXAS COUNTIES ARE

Current Situation June 20, 2022 at 9:30 a.m.

Since Friday, Texas A&M Forest Service fire resources responded to 19 wildfires that burned approximately 589 acres.

 

A stagnant pattern of hot and dry conditions will progressively reduce moisture in vegetation through the middle of next week. As surface vegetation becomes drier and more receptive to burning, wildfire activity is likely to increase.

 

Brush and timber litter fuels will be receptive to burning in East Texas, Central Texas, North Texas and in portions of South Texas. Hot and dry conditions will combine with critically dry vegetation to support the potential for wildfires in the Eastern Hill Country through Tuesday.

There are currently 142 counties with burn bans.
