The Galveston County commissioners court is holding an emergency meeting today. It will decide whether to approve a burn ban. Harris County approved a burn ban Tuesday. So far, Fort Bend County is the only county in the viewing area that hasn't enforced a burn ban.

More than 200 counties throughout Texas are under a burn ban because of drought conditions.
