Statewide Burn Ban Lifted← Back
Louisiana State Fire Marshall Lifts Burn Ban
St. Tammany Fire Protection District No. 1 wishes to advise the public that as of 1pm on November 3, 2010 the State Fire Marshall Butch Browning and Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain have lifted the cease and desist order on private burning. With recent recordings of rain fall statewide, conditions have improved to allow such burning activities.
Citizens are advised to proceed with caution in conducting outdoor burning including not leaving fires unattended and keeping a 100 foot area clear from vegetation, buildings and wooded areas.
In addition, local governments and fire departments should be consulted as to any local concerns since this statewide ban has been lifted.
