Outdoor burning in the state of Texas is common, in fact I saw some neighbors down the road from me burning an old tree just last week. But there are some things that you should know prior to ever starting a fire. I wanted to share some of those important details with you to make sure you’re being safe and not creating a problem for anyone around you.  

When I started doing some research on outdoor burning in Texas there was a lot of information. The best websites that I found are both government websites for the state of Texas, the Texas Commission on Enviromental Quality and Texas Department of Insurance. Some of the same information was posted on both websites but it’s because the information is that important and there are some rules to follow to make sure you don’t get yourself in trouble.
