Burn Ban In Effect Immediately

Burn Ban

From Mansfield Fire Marshal Scott Lingo, the Tarrant County Commissioner's Court issued a 90-day burn ban effective Sept. 28. The ban will be reviewed by the Commissioner's Court after 90 days. 

Within the city limits of Mansfield, outdoor cooking is permitted provided you use the following guidelines: 

  • Charcoal or wood-burning grills shall be placed on a solid, non-combustible surface such as gravel, concrete or bare earth, and must be kept a minimum of 10 feet from combustible materials or structures.
  • Recreational fire pits must follow the same guidelines and can be used for warming, cooking and enjoyment. 
  • No leaves or debris may be burned at any time.
  • Nuisance fires will be extinguished.
