LIVINGSTON — Firefighters responded to three fires in Livingston Parish on Friday, Aug. 18th.

Fire District 4 responded to two fires. One was on John Lanier Rd. near Weiss Rd. The call came out around 4:53pm. It’s now under control. Officials report this fire is now one acre wide and started as a grass fire.

The fire chief reports that no structures are impacted and no evacuations were issued.

Just 15 minutes prior around 4:40pm, another fire was at Burgess Rd. near Crossover Rd. in Walker. It is now under control.

It came out as a trash fire and spread into the woods. It too was off the main roadway. Fire Chief James Wascom said that fire started after someone tried to set some trash on fire but the blaze spread into the woods before it could be contained.

Meanwhile, Fire District 1 also responded to a small trash fire in Albany, but no further details have been provided at this time. It too has been extinguished.

Due to the dry conditions, high temperatures and lack of rain, it’s why a statewide burn ban remains in place.
