Some burn bans in the ArkLaTex being lifted, others remain in place
Dry conditions due to a lack of adequate rainfall are increasing the danger of fire
(KSLA) — Dry conditions due to a lack of adequate rainfall are increasing the danger of fire. As a result, ArkLaTex parishes and counties are under a burn ban.
The entire state of Louisiana was placed under a burn ban Aug. 7; that ban was modified by the state fire marshal on Sept. 27. Since then, a number of parishes have lifted their burn bans.
