VERNON PARISH, La. (KALB) - UPDATE as of July 1, 2022: The burn ban for Vernon Parish has been lifted.

The Vernon Parish Police Jury has issued a parish-wide burn ban for Vernon Parish, due to the recent hot and dry conditions.

Firefighters have already responded to numerous fires in Vernon Parish that were started from open burning. One fire burned a shed and two vehicles.

In these dry conditions, ash from open fires can ignite grass and brush that can easily become out of control.
