The Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshall is lifting a statewide burn ban that was put in place nearly a month ago.
The Marshall made the announcement yesterday that the ban was ending as the government moves to begin reopening portions of the state.
The ban was initially put in place back on March 24th to minimize the amount of fire-related accidents during the stay-at-home order.
Even with the ban lifted, the State Fire Marshall urges residents to continue to adhere to all burn guidelines developed by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.
