Burn bans in the ArkLaTex

ARKLATEX (KSLA) -

Thanks to several days of soaking rain, burn bans are being lifted in parts of the ArkLaTex.  Much of the region has been under a burn ban since early October due to extremely dry conditions.

Seven county burn bans remained in effect in Arkansas early Oct. 28. But all of those had been lifted by lunchtime, leaving no burn bans in effect in Arkansas.

A statewide burn ban for Louisiana was issued Oct. 16 by the state fire marshal's office. That ban was lifted the afternoon of Oct. 26.

Following are the bans that remain in effect:

SW ARKANSAS

  • None in effect

E TEXAS

  • Bowie County
  • Red River County
  • Titus County

NW LOUISIANA

  • None in effect

This information will continuously be updated as burn bans are issued. 

If you know of any burn bans that have been issued and are not on this list, please contact us at ksla@ksla.com.
