Caddo Parish still under burn ban

Burn Ban

After a week, Caddo Parish is still under a burn ban along with Bossier, Desoto, and Webster parishes in Louisiana, Marion, Harrison,and Cass counties in Texas, and Howard and Hempstead counties in Arkansas.

A burn ban means no outside burning of any kind until the ban is lifted. Open burning at this time is considered extremely dangerous to people, buildings, trees, and grasslands. Violations are considered serious and can be punishable by fines and/or imprisonment

Moderate drought is spreading through much of the area and is worsening by the lack of falling rain. The National Weather Service is predicting chances of much needed rain and thunderstorms this weekend.
