UPDATE: STATEWIDE BURN BAN LIFTED
BATON ROUGE- Following consultation among the State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFM), Louisiana 
Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF), the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security (GOHSEP) 
and the National Weather Service (NWS), the statewide burn ban initially issued on August 7th, and 
modified as recently as September 29th, is being rescinded effective as of 5 p.m. on Tuesday,

Where open burning is allowed in local ordinances, the SFM would like to remind residents that the 
only legal items you can burn in Louisiana are vegetation and ordinary yard waste items like 
leaves, tree branches, grass clippings, etc.
