Good afternoon! Here's some information regarding tomorrow's near-record heat and fire danger:
Breezy winds, low humidity, and warm temperatures on Thursday (into the high 80s!) will be the perfect recipe for grass fires that could quickly grow out of control. Precinct 4 remains in a burn ban. All residents: please exercise extreme caution tomorrow when working outdoors with anything that may spark a fire and do not throw cigarette butts outside.
The elevated-to-critical fire threat will be serious tomorrow and we want to make sure that everyone stays safe.

TxDOT will shut down Texas 174 at U.S. 67 from 11 p.m. 2/25 (Saturday) to 2 p.m. 2/26 (Sunday). They are installing new concrete beams for the bridge.
