East Texas has seen its fair share of forest and grass fires recently. The drought of 2011 made it practically impossible to stop them from starting.
And right now is one of the driest times of the year.
A child reported missing last week in west Shreveport has been located safe and sound in East Texas.
The child, Matthew Edwin Monie, 6, went missing on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. in the 9000 block of Loan Oak Drive.
One man is behind bars after being found walking next to a police station with a prohibited substance in his pocket early Sunday morning.
It happened around 3:37 a.m. in the 300 block of Shepherd Avenue.
