The sign at the intersection of the Cutoff Road and US 84 says fire danger today is “Extreme.” If you haven’t noticed the ground is very dry. Continued dry conditions have necessitated a ban on all burning in the parish.
Red River Fire Chief Shane Felts issued the ban on Wednesday. His posting on social media said, “Red River Parish is under a burn ban effective yesterday (11.28.17) until further notice. At 8 a.m. Red River Parish has yet again been put under a burn ban. No outside burning, please!!”
