Here's you a map from the Texas Forest Service:http://tfsfrp.tamu.edu/wildfires/decban.pngApparently, this is the call of Brewster County officials.
I can appreciate how wary the officials are after the mega-fire in Alpine & Ft. Davis last year ...... but, I laugh when I think of a county-wide ban, I don't think most places in Terlingua Ranch have enough stuff to burn to worry about a fire since ya can't burn bare dirt, I could literally pour gasoline on the ground and couldn't get a fire started at my place .... A Border Patrol helicopter ratted out a local welder a few weeks ago, the man was welding, sparks were flying so the BP called the Sheriff and the welder ended up with a couple of hundred dollars in fines. There was simply no way the guy could have started a fire, creosotes bushes spaced 10 feet apart etc.
