LIVINGSTON - Officials in Livingston Parish have put a burn ban back in effect, just nine days after that ban was lifted.

The move follows a request for such action from area fire chiefs concerned about conditions in the parish.

The burn ban will take effect Friday at 6 a.m.

In late September, the state fire marshal eased restrictions and allowed local government to determine whether a burn ban should remain in effect. Several area parishes decided to lift the ban in the weeks that followed.

The list of parishes that currently allow outdoor burning includes Ascension, Assumption, West Baton Rouge, West Feliciana, St. Mary and Tangipahoa.
