Washington Parish is under a burn ban as of Monday, Aug. 7. The burn ban is in effect due to extreme heat and dry temperatures that pose a wildfire risk for the area.

Parish officials ask that all residents refrain from any outdoor burning until the ban is lifted in two weeks.

St. Tammany Parish and St. Charles Parish are also under a burn ban.
