OKLAHOMA CITY - Dry conditions have forced many Oklahoma counties to issue burn bans.

Those counties include Adair, Blaine, Beaver, Creek, Comanche, Custer, Dewey, Haskell, Latimer, LeFlore, Mayes, McIntosh, Muskogee, Ottawa, Payne, Pittsburg, Seminole, Sequoyah, Tillman, Tulsa and Wagoner counties.

The burn ban means residents cannot build campfires or bonfires, burn trash, or grill with charcoal or wood. Violators could be hit with a $500 fine.
