Evangeline Parish is under a burn ban.
Police Jury President Ryan Ardoin put the ban in effect Tuesday afternoon. It will remain in effect until further notice. Residents are reminded that they are not allowed to burn leaves, timber, fields, or anything else.
Parish officials say the burn ban was ordered after fire departments responded to several grass fires , including some Tuesday.
