High Wildfire Danger Threatens Oklahoma

High Wildfire Danger Threatens Oklahoma
Oklahoma Forestry Services is urging Oklahomans to be aware that critical fire weather will be present across the state Wednesday, and will most likely remain elevated at least until the weekend. As a result of these conditions, outdoor burning should be avoided until conditions improve.


Warmer temperatures, gusty winds and lower relative humidity have prompted a Red Flag warning for much of the state. Oklahoma Forestry Services monitors immediate weather conditions, as well as, long-term weather forecasts, the condition of wildland fuels, current fire behavior and fire occurrences on a daily basis. All of these factors are taken into consideration when making recommendations to the public about fire danger.


"We are asking Oklahomans to pay close attention to the fire weather forecast over the next few days," said George Geissler, Oklahoma State Forester. "For the safety of our citizens and our state's firefighters, we are advising people to avoid outdoor burning until conditions improve."


Oklahoma Forestry Services, a division of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, is the state's lead agency related to the wildland fire prevention, protection and use. For the latest burn ban and fire information, visit www.forestry.ok.gov.
