(KWTX) Burn bans in several Central Texas counties have been lifted as a result of rains before, and during, Hurricane Harvey.

Based on recent rainfall and projected weather conditions, the burn bans in McLennan, Bell, and Limestone counties have been lifted.

Outdoor burning is now permitted in those counties under certain guidelines.

Emergency management officials are reminding the public to burn responsibly.
