🚨The statewide burn ban will remain in effect for Iberia Parish🚨
No private burning will be allowed.
The following applies to the statewide burn ban:
(1) The use of open flames in fire pits, campfires, barrels, bonfires, burn piles and like-open burning is included in the burn ban.
(2) Outdoor cooking is not a citable offense, but if your cooking creates a fire that the fire department has to respond to, you will get a citation. It is recommended to conduct all outdoor cooking with safety measures in place including using contained cooking equipment like grills and smokers, designed for cooking purposes only, on a flame-resistant surface with a water source or fire extinguisher nearby.
(3) Mowing and yard work is not banned, however, it is preferred to avoid mowing and/or driving/operating hot machinery and/or any activity that could produce a spark on or near dry, brown, dead grass because of its flammability.
The Fire District will assist school function bon fires for homecoming with specific guidelines that will be applied.
