Oklahoma to Experience Heightened Fire Danger Wednesday Across Central and Western Oklahoma

Tue, 12 Feb 2019 15:25:45 CST

Oklahoma to Experience Heightened Fire Danger Wednesday Across Central and Western Oklahoma Oklahoma Forestry Services officials urge residents in Central and Western Oklahoma to use caution as fire danger increases Wednesday. The area of concern includes counties west of U.S. Highway 75, which encompasses the western two-thirds of the state. Elevated fire danger on Wednesday is due to high sustainable wind speeds and low relative humidity, which create the potential for large fires.



“We are especially concerned with outdoor burning activities, such as debris burning, prescribed burns or controlled burns tomorrow,” said Oklahoma Forestry Services Director and State Forester Mark Goeller. “It is also imperative that anyone who engages in outdoor burning today be sure the fire is dead out to ensure that it does not reignite on Wednesday.”



In addition to using caution with outdoor burning, citizens are urged to be careful with anything that can spark a wildfire and to report any suspicious smoke or fire to their closest fire department or by calling 911. Homeowners can also make their home more defensible by moving trash, debris and other flammable items like firewood piles or portable propane tanks a safe distance away from their home.



Oklahoma Forestry Services is the state’s lead agency related to wildland fire prevention, protection and use. For additional information about wildfires, visit www.forestry.ok.gov/wildfire-information.
