From the Office of the Bayou Cane Fire Chief: Crews worked throughout the night to contain the marsh fire in the Hwy 90 and Savanne Rd area. At approximately 12:30 a.m., the fire was deemed contained and crews switched from suppression efforts to monitoring conditions.
During last night's efforts, no structures were endangered. There was and will remain smoke throughout the area as the fire continues to burn and smolder. People with breathing conditions should take necessary precauations to avoid the smoke.
Please remember 911 is for emergencies only.
We would like to thank the following agencies for all their assistance in coming together to mitigate:
Bayou Blue Fire Department
Bayou Black Fire Department
Schriever Fire Department
City of Houma Fire Department
Houma Police Department
Terrebonne Parish Government

Bayou Cane personnel will continue to monitor the fire and initiate suppression activities as necessary. Currently, we are on scene on US Highway 90 between LA Highway 311 assessing the fire and will take appropriate actions as the conditions warrant.
Reminder: The statewide burn ban is still in effect.
