TALLULAH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A grass fire at a Tallulah cemetery destroys everything but headstones and metalwork.

Around 10:30 this morning, the Madison Parish Fire Department responded to a grass fire at the Oakwood Cemetery. The fire covered about half an acre of the cemetery. The fire department says there's just surface damage, meaning anything that wasn't concrete or metal was destroyed, including several markers for graves without headstones.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.
