Burn ban in effect

The Webster Parish Fire Chiefs Association has requested a burn ban for all of Webster Parish to prohibit all outdoor burning and open fires (including fire pits). This request is due to the lack of adequate rainfall the parish has received lately coupled with the extreme temperatures. This ban does not apply to prescribed burns by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry. The ban shall remain in force until such time the Webster Parish Fire Chiefs Association determines that the weather conditions are safe enough to cancel the burn ban.
