SUMMARY: The largest wildfire ever recorded in the state of Louisiana is causing difficulties for firefighters and officials. Shifts in wind speed and direction are complicating containment efforts, with progress being undone if the wind changes. So far, 20 structures have been lost to the fire, including homes and barns. Some roads have been opened to traffic, but caution is advised due to smoldering areas. Prayer for the safety of team members, the community, and rain is requested.
