Report: West Bank Marsh Fire Clouded Wednesday Evening

About 7 p.m., the burning smell of smoke and haze around the Lakeview area near I-10 increased to proportions that reminded us of last year's New Orleans East Marsh Fire, though not nearly as consistent. Turns out it wasn't oil, or that marsh fire flaring up again. The Jefferson Parish Fire Department told Fox 8 news that the smoke was from a marsh fire on the West Bank near Waggaman.
