NWLA parishes start lifting burn bans

A separate prohibition against burning on or near the Lake Bistineau lakebed remains in effect

NWLA parishes start lifting burn bans

BENTON, La. (KSLA) — There is no longer any prohibition against outdoor burning in Bossier, DeSoto, Natchitoches and Webster parishes.

The bans issued last month in response to drought conditions were rescinded Monday.

People, however, still should exercise good judgement and caution when burning outside, said Ian Snellgrove, director of the Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

Bossier Police Jury President Doug Rimmer signed a document rescinding that parish’s ban Monday, says a post on the Police Jury’s Facebook page.

That action, however, has no impact on Lake Bistineau.
