|Police Jury lifts ban on fireworks|
The Ouachita Parish Police Jury on Friday lifted the temporary ban on the discharge of fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Ouachita Parish due to recent rain.
Ouachita Parish Police Jury President Shane Smiley made the announcement Friday morning.
The Police Jury on Monday enacted the temporary ban on open-air burning and the discharge of fireworks. The Police Jury acted on the matter during its regular meeting.
The burn ban was enacted due to drought conditions over the past several weeks.
Due to significant rainfall in recent days and the increase in humidity, Ouachita Parish fire chief Pat Hemphill recommended the temporary ban on the discharge of fireworks imposed Monday should be terminated, according to Smiley.
The temporary ban on outdoor burning of trash, garbage, leaves, limbs, branches and debris in the unincorporated areas of Ouachita Parish remains in full force and effect, Smiley said.
