Judge Carol Bush

EDN News Service, editor@ennisdailynews.com
Just over a week after a grass fire consumed over 230 acres in Ellis and Dallas counties, destroying one home and five vehicles as well as damaging 12 other structures, County Judge Carol Bush has issued a declaration of disaster including the prohibition of the use of fireworks.
“The Commissioners’ Court has already instituted a ban on outdoor burning, which prohibits the discharge of any fireworks within the unincorporated areas of Ellis County; and, they have prohibited the sale of restricted fireworks, specifically skyrockets with sticks and missiles with fins,” Bush said. “But because the drought conditions are so severe at this time, in the interest of public safety, I felt that this declaration of disaster was necessary to ensure that the provisions of the Court’s burn ban are fully enforceable.”
