Three separate controlled burns since mid-morning have created some concern all over Shreveport and Bossier.

With the drought we’ve been experiencing, local leaders have been issuing burn-bans for Parish after Parish in our area, and counties all over East Texas and Southern Arkansas. Additionally, national coverage of the wildfires in the Western US have everyone showing heightened concern.

So when clouds of smoke and haze covered portions of Bossier and Downtown Shreveport, people became obviously concerned. Social media flooded with questions and assumptions. But we now have an answer.

But KEEL News has been told there are three controlled burns today, two in Bienville Parish, and one in Bossier Parish, that have all contributed to the haze and smoke clouds today.
