OKLAHOMA CITY -- Despite the snowfall during the past two weeks, Logan and Lincoln Counties are still under a burn ban.

Both bans started at the beginning of this month and are in place for the next 30 days. Officials said there wasn't enough snow to make up for the dry grass and they fear more fires like one that sparked two weeks ago could happen again later this week.

People caught burning anything outside in Lincoln County could be charged a $500 fine.
