Burn ban a serious matter
The recent death of a Marion man shows all to well why there is a currently a statewide burn ban in Louisiana — life and personal property are at stake.
That man tragically died Saturday while trying to put out an attempted controlled burn that got out of control.
Louisiana, even the northern part of the state, has long been known for it’s high humidity. But for much of the late summer, we’ve found ourselves high and dry with summer-like temperatures but surprisingly low humidity.
