It seems firefighters all around the area have been staying waaaaaayyyyyy too busy.


The fires in Texas continue.

Shreveport had the fire near the GM plant yesterday.

Earlier in the week, Oil City saw fire action.

And now, the hard working firefighters are back out fighting a new fire.

Shortly before 3pm, fire crews from Caddo Fire District 8 and 7 were dispatched out to a large pasture fire in northern Caddo Parish, near Vivian.

Before 4pm, Caddo Parish Fire District 8 requested assistance from the Caddo Sheriff's Office in evacuating residences on Cross Creek Street and Murray Lane in Vivian.

So far, this fire has encompassed 20-26 acres.  There are several structures involved including homes and barnes, but there are no reports of injuries at this time.

Residents are being encouraged to leave their homes at this time.
