Amarillo, Texas - Every county in the Texas Panhandle is under a burn ban, so be extra careful while you're grilling and celebrating this long weekend outside.

You are not allowed to do any sort of outdoor burning. You can use your grill, but fire pits are not okay.

Fire officials warn you to stay away from all fireworks. With humidity this low and winds this high, just a single spark from a firework can easily start a fast moving wildfire.
