Much of Caddo Parish is now under a burn ban.
Chief Ernest Mitchell of Caddo Fire District #3 reports that, effective immediately, there shall be no outdoor burning in southern Caddo Parish due to the extremely dry conditions.
The affected areas include Caddo Fire Districts 3, 4, 5 and 6. That includes Greenwood, Keithville, the South Ellerbe area and basically everything from South Lakeshore south.
Caddo becomes the second parish in Louisiana to be placed under a burn ban so far this year.
Marion, Harrison, Panola, Shelby, Nacogdoches, San Augustine and Sabine Parishes are also under burn bans in East Texas.
