14 Oklahoma Counties Remain Under Burn Ban

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Gov. Mary Fallin issued a proclamation reducing the number of counties under a burn ban Thursday afternoon.

Okahoma Forestry Services said after analyzing the amount of rainfall, only 14 counties should remain under the burn ban. They include: Beaver, Beckham, Cimarron, Dewey, Ellis, Greer, Harmon, Harper, Jackson, Major, Roger Mills, Texas, Woods and Woodward.

“Wetting rains have reduced the dangerous wildfire conditions that were prevalent in a large part of the state for the past few weeks,” said OFS Director and State Forester George Geissler.  “However, there are some parts of the state still at risk for additional fire danger.”

“We have seen the devastation that wildfires have caused in our state over the past few months, and I urge citizens to continue to be vigilant, especially in those counties still under burn bans,” Fallin said.
