Burn ban issued for Allen Parish
Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - A burn ban has been issued for residents of Allen Parish at the request of the local Fire Cheifs, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office.
A burn ban means all unauthorized private burning will no longer be allowed until the ban is lifted. This does not affect prescribed burns by farmers, Dept. of Agriculture, or Forestry personnel.
Surrounding Beauregard, Vernon, and Rapides Parishes are also under burn bans due to similar dry conditions in the area.
