DOYLINE, La. - A state forestry worker is burned while
bulldozing a firebreak against a woods fire that started near Doyline and spread toward Haughton. The worker's name and condition weren't available Monday morning.
He was burned Sunday, when Bossier and Webster parish
firefighters and state forestry workers spent more than seven hours containing the fire.
Chief Deputy Bobby Igo of the Webster Parish Sheriff's Office says, that the fire may have started from a trash fire that got out of control. He says Webster Parish firefighters put out the trash fire Saturday night, but got a call Sunday morning saying it had re-ignited. No houses or farm buildings were burned.
The U.S. Drought Monitor says South Webster and Bossier parishes are in an extreme drought.
