Big Bend National Park (Texas) restricts what you can burn as fire danger in the area increases.

According to a report, as of April 28, charcoal burning at Chisos Basin and the Basin Campground is prohibited.

However, propane cookstoves, gas grills, and other similar instruments are still allowed.

The National Park Service reminds the public to exercise extreme caution.

A large portion of West Texas has been under red flag warnings for several days as temperatures rise and drought conditions worsen.

As temperatures rise, Big Bend also encourages hikers to be aware of heat safety, bring plenty of water, and avoid hiking trails during the hottest times of the day.
