TYLER (KYTX)- Today, Smokey the Bear came to CBS 19 and delivered the fire prevention award to our weather team.
This award was given for helping wildfire prevention and informing East Texas about burn bans.
"CBS 19's weather team has done a great job talking about burn bans, weather conditions throughout the years," says Luke Kanclerz, Texas A&M Forest Service. "Especially, in 2011 when we had the really bad fire season here in East Texas."
By the way smokey will be celebrating his 70th birthday this Saturday.
We want to wish Smokey a very happy birthday.
Congratulations to our weather team.?
