The county said in a release that County Judge Dan A. Gattis lifted the ban Aug. 7 for unincorporated areas of Williamson County.

Before residents conduct a controlled burn, the county asks they take the following steps:

- Contact your local fire department, as some departments may require a permit.
- Call and report your controlled burn to Williamson County Communications at 512-864-8282.
