TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Smith County, the most populous in East Texas, has become the latest to issue a burn ban, according to the City of Bullard.

This comes less than 24 hours after Cherokee County issued its own ban.

Numerous East Texas counties have put bans in place after a long period of extreme heat and very little rain.

No outdoor burning of any kind is allowed while a county is under a ban.
