Burn Bans Extended for Several Local Areas
Burn bans remain in effect in several communities in Northwest Louisiana because of this heat.
Red River Parish
Here's the Caddo Parish Map:
State Fire Marshall Butch Browning tells KEEL News he is keeping a close eye on the situation and might issue a regional burn ban for North Louisiana. Temps have topped the 100 degree mark for 5 straight days. On Tuesday, our high temp got to 98 degrees. We will close in on the 100 degree mark today.
He says hot, dry conditions make it very dangerous for any outdoor burning. Browning says one small spark could trigger a massive woods fire.
