As the hot and dry weather continues, more area counties are enacting burn bans.
Fayette and Waller Counties are now among the 84 counties statewide with active burn bans.
They join Lee and Walker Counties, which issued bans earlier this week, and Colorado County, which enacted a ban last week.
A burn ban prohibits outdoor burning until the ban is lifted. The bans are effective until further notice from county officials.
While several counties in Southeast Texas are not under ban yet, much of Central Texas is now under burn ban.
At this point, there are no burn bans in place in Washington, Austin, Burleson, Brazos, or Grimes Counties.
You can view a list of counties affected at the Texas A&M Forest Service website.
