Updated Burn Ban Map
In light of the increasing number of grassfires and wildfires which have occurred in many parts of Oklahoma last week and this week, more and more county commissioners are enacting burn bans.
Even with burn bans, it is likely that the fires will continue to occur, but hopefully there will be fewer of them. We have had a burn ban here in Love County since November, except for one week when they let it expire, and we have had fires every week---but fewer fires than we had when there was not a burn ban.
The number of counties with burn bans changes almost daily because the burn ban law allows 7-day burn bans which the commissioners can either let expire or choose to renew on a weekly basis. Today there are 53 counties with burn bans on the map.
If you see a grass fire or wild fire in your area, please report it to the local authorities. And, if a fire is moving towards your home, turn on your sprinklers and you'll probably save not only your landscape plants but your home as well.
