Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND PARISH (KNOE 8)-The dry weather and scorching temperatures are forcing eight parishes in Northeast Louisiana to declare a burn ban.

Richland parish manager , Larry Wheeler, says they issued a ban after a number of grassfires were reported there Saturday.

Other parishes banning all outdoor burning are Lincoln, Caldwell, Franklin, Catahoula, Concordia...except the village of Clayton, Madison, and Winn parishes.

A ban on all outdoor burning is in effect in those areas until there is rain relief.
