If You Burn Items In Bell County, Remember To Do This!

KCEN reports that if you are going to burn items, you must call the burn ban hotline at 254-933-5555. This is used to make sure that local fire departments don't respond to a ban, that while planned by an individual, may alarm someone who doesn't know it was planned.
