Red River Fire Protection District Chief Shane Felts is rescinding the parish-wide ban on open burning. Felts took the action Tuesday morning.
Felts said, “I believe we can safely drop the burn ban at this time. I still don’t believe we’ve gotten enough rainfall, but I don’t feel like the fire danger is as bad either. So, I am dropping the burn ban today, October 15, 2019 @ 10:30 a.m.
