The Lafayette Fire Department says firefighters have responded to over 20 complaints of residents in the parish burning trash since the statewide burn ban was placed by the Louisiana State Fire Marshal last week.
The Lafayette Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”
Thursday morning we all saw pictures of the vehicle completely submerged in the flood waters at the Jefferson St. underpass. What you may not have seen are the Lafayette firefighters who bravely rescued a woman trapped in that vehicle.
