Worker Killed During Controlled Burn In Webster Parish

A man helping with a controlled burn was killed Thursday afternoon in Webster Parish.
Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton says the man worked for a private company that was hired to clear out brush along Highway 163 and Booth Cutoff Road. That's just south of Doyline.
Sexton said right now he thinks the 25-year-old worker from east Texas somehow got caught up in the flames of the controlled burn.
No other details are being released at this time.
