Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal

(The Livingston Parish News) – After two Sundays of torrential rainfall throughout the state, and the extra rains today (Thursday, April 23), State Fire Marshal Butch Browning is lifting his decision.

Since March 25, the state has been under a ‘burn ban,’ which has been lifted – effectively immediately.

“Please remain aware of and compliant with any local restrictions on open burning,” the fire marshal said on Facebook. “Please also be sure to follow safe open burning practices.

“Thank you to everyone who cooperated in order to be considerate of your neighbors who are spending more time at home due to #COVID19!”
