East Baton Rouge Parish, La — Fire officials in East Baton Rouge Parish are reminding residents not to burn the fallen debris Hurricane Isaac may have left behind in their yards.
Not only is there an ordinance against it, but it takes fire crews off of emergency calls.
Also, burning the debris creates lots of smoke; when people without power have windows open, it creates a big problem.
