Effective today at 9:00 a.m. State Fire Marshall Butch Browning lifted the cease and desist order on outdoor burning in St. John Parish that was issued September 4, 2012. The burn ban was issued as a precaution and as a result of the large amount of debris in the area.
Parish President Natalie Robottom and the State Fire Marshal’s Office would like to thank all residents and businesses for their adherence to the burn ban order.
Outdoor burning is now allowed although residents are advised to please proceed with caution when conducting outdoor burning including not leaving fires unattended and keeping a 100 foot area clear from vegetation, buildings and wooded areas.
