Limestone County Emergency Management officials issued a burn ban for the county Friday.
Limestone County Emergency Management Director Matt Groveton stated the burn ban will be in effect for the entire county. A heat advisory also was in effect from Killeen to Denton.
Groveton said a Limestone County judge issued the ban because of the dry and hot conditions in the region. He said the burn ban will remain in effect until the county receives a "meaningful" amount of rain.
