    Forest fires are killers.  They devastate our land, destroying valuable timber, improved property, and can cause loss of human life.  High winds and lack of rain in our local area is fast turning brush and grasses into an explosive fire hazard.
    The Texas Forest Service urges everyone to be extremely careful with all fires out of doors.  Field and brush burning should be postponed until after the next rain.  If household trash must be burned, do so only in the later afternoon when wind is low and then only in a safe trash burner.  Stay with the fire until it is dead out.
    Remember, only YOU can prevent forest fires.
