The Lincoln Parish Fire Department responded to two separate structure fires in less than six hours on Tuesday.
The first fire was reported on Bennett Road in Grambling at approximately 6:33 p.m. The Grambling Fire Department requested mutual aid assistance from the LPFD in combating the fire at 141 Bennett Road.
Louisiana Tech University’s Forestry Department held a reception recently to thank members of the Martin Foundation, the charitable arm of the RoyOMartin Companies, for a donation of four vans to be used by forestry faculty and students.
Four 15-passenger vans were donated directly to the university rather than through the Louisiana Tech University Foundation, and will go directly into the State Vehicle Pool.
The donation was by no means the first time the Martin Foundation has helped Tech programs as it has also provided scholarship funds to Louisiana Tech since 1998.
