Have you noticed the slight haze and smell of burning leaves in Acadiana over this past week?
The reason why is because of the wildfires burning around Louisiana.
Some of these fires are smaller in nature, but there are a few that are very serious, burning over 10,000 acres of land and forcing mandatory evacuations in parts of Louisiana.
From APNews.com -
"Hundreds of wildfires are burning in Louisiana, as triple-digit temperatures continue to scorch parts of the state amid little chance of relief because of the lack of rain in the forecast."
As volunteer and mandatory evacuations continue to be ordered around Louisiana, it's helpful to know exactly where these fires are burning.
