HOUMA, La. — Editor's note: In an update from the Bayou Cane Fire Department, at 12:30 a.m. on Thursday morning, crews deemed the marsh fire contained. No structures were harmed. Due to heavy smoke, people with breathing conditions should take necessary precautions to avoid the smoke.
Wildfires continue to scorch the state, including yet another on Wednesday.
WWL-TV viewer Chase Toups got a birds-eye view of a marsh fire in Terrebonne Parish.
Toups captured drone footage of the fire burning from Louisiana Highway 90, between Ousiki Bayou and Bayou Cane, and blowing toward Savanne Road.
While the fire is not yet accessible nor causing any immediate threats to homes or business, a large plume of smoke could be seen encroaching Houma.
