Sabine placed under burn ban

President of Sabine Parish’s Police Jury Ronnie Bison and David Davis, local director of the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness have declared a burn ban for Sabine Parish that will last until it is rescinded at a later date.

The two state that there is a definite threat to the property and lives of those in Sabine Parish due to the current extreme drought condition.  It prohibits all outside burning of but not just extended to garbage, leaves, and brush.  Burn permits are issued only by one of three Sabine Parish fire chiefs.

Violators are subject to a fine of not less than $100 but not more than $500 and court costs.
