(KSLA) - The danger of wildfires is high in Southwest Arkansas and Northwest Louisiana and moderate in Northeast Texas.
That means an increased risk of fires like one that recently charred 6 to 10 acres in the Marshall, Texas, area.
A high fire danger generally means fires start easily and can be difficult to control if not addressed immediately.
Arkansas has burn bans in 16 counties. Most are in the north-central part of the state. None is in the ArkLaTex.
