Denton County Issues a Mandatory Burn Ban

Denton County Outdoor Burn Ban: Effective July 25, 2023

As of July 25, Denton County is under a mandatory burn ban due to dry, hot weather with little chance of relief in the immediate future. While the ban is in effect, the following activities are prohibited:

  • Outdoor burning of a combustible material, including wood, lumber, leaves, brush, and more.
  • Outdoor cooking unless in a propane or natural gas grill with a full enclosure. Wood and charcoal grills are also allowed but only with a full enclosure, and the five-foot radius around the grill must be clear of vegetation and combustible material.
  • There are also multiple restrictions now in place regarding outdoor hotwork, such as welding. To learn more about those restrictions, visit

Ignoring this mandatory burn ban is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500. The majority of Denton County is currently classified in “severe” drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor Map. The burn ban will remain in place until drought conditions are alleviated.
