Don't be alarmed...it's only a drill. That's the message from the Bossier City Fire Department ahead of a planned fire drill this week.

The drill will last about three hours starting at 8 a.m. Thursday, June 30. It'll be conducted between the 900 and 1000 blocks of Hamilton Road.

Barricades will be blocking the roadway at the Hamilton intersections with E. Texas Street, Old Benton Road and McCall Street.

We're told citizens may see smoke, but there's no cause for alarm.
