Grayson County Judge Bill Magers declared a burn ban and a state of disaster  in the county Friday. Magers fears the threat of large-scale wildfires.

The county’s proclamation states that fires could "escalate to major proportions."

The state of emergency and burn ban are in effect for seven days unless overridden by the County Commissioner’s Court.
