Dry conditions create serious fire hazard
Due to an extended period of dry weather, the woods, brush and grass of our parish is like a tinder box. One spark, with the way the wind tends to whip during north central Louisiana winters, is all it takes to create a raging inferno that eats everything in its path.
Thursday, area firefighters battles seven such blazes. The roaring flames threatened homes, destroyed trees and placed the lives of the brave men and women called on to fight the fires in danger.
