Burn ban considered
The Lincoln Parish Fire District may need to call a parishwide burn ban in the coming days if conditions remain dry and more fires erupt.
LPFD spokesman Jim Hilton said there have been 11 grass fires since May 1, nine of which were in the last two weeks.
“They are definitely on the rise,” Hilton said. “They’ve been all over, pretty much everywhere.”
The size of the fires have ranged from a few feet to more than a quarter of a mile.
