You have burn bans there, from time-to-time. We had one at Bistineau a few years back. We got a permit to have fires, but we had to jump through some hoops, and agree to some conditions.
Here in Texas, burn bans are done by county judge. How they are enforced is controlled by each city within that county, based on that cities capacity to deal with a wildfire.
My city allows charcoal grilling during burn bans in residential areas (where a wildfire is highly unlikely). In more rural areas of the city, it's gas and electric only for grilling.
