Barksdale Air Force controlled burn continues Wednesday

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Barksdale Air Force base began a controlled burn of 305 acres on Tuesday. The reason for the burn is to reduce the wildfire risk, by taking away underbrush, which could help fuel a fire to quickly spread.

The burn will continue on Wednesday at 11 a.m. from the base's East Reservation.
