DeWitt County Commissioners Court had considered placing a burn ban in effect but scattered showers has delayed that decision.
Meeting Monday morning, the court reviewed the drought index which last week indicated a burn ban might be needed. But thanks to rain on Friday and a forecast for more, the court decided to postpone a ban on outside fires in the rural areas.
They also postponed a possible ban on aerial fireworks for the coming July 4 holidays.
