Gilmer burn ban won't affect planned fireworks display
Longview, TX — Gilmer City Council members on Tuesday enacted a burn ban for the city.
All outdoor burning is outlawed, as are the use of fireworks of any kind inside Gilmer's city limits.
Gilmer Fire Marshal Johnny Taylor said the ban does not affect Sunday night's community fireworks display. The show is operated by a professional pyrotechnics company that is licensed, bonded and insured, Taylor said.
"Grilling is fine as long as it is in an enclosed cooker and is tended," Taylor said.
