Practice safety with fireworks during holidays
Fireworks will likely be heard in various spots around Lincoln Parish beginning Tuesday night.
Despite the burn ban, the Lincoln Parish Fire Department has given the green light for fireworks to be shot between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Thursday.
However, LPFD spokesman Jim Hilton urges caution for those who do choose to shoot fireworks, since the celebratory devices have caused both grass and structure fires in Lincoln Parish. In two cases in recent years, he said, houses were completely destroyed by fires sparked by fireworks.
