And So It Begins…

Fire season! For the first time in a while, a burn ban has now been issued for 1 Oklahoma County.Okfusgee County is the first of what may be many county wide burn bans issued this winter as we head into the driest time of the year!

And so for now, the map above looks clean with the exception of that 1 burn ban just issued. But, given the ongoing drought across the state, which is expected to get worse. The lack of rain in the forecast for at least the next few days, and the fact that a majority of the fires lately have been caused by humans, I anticipate that many more burn bans will be issued. By the end of the month, we’ll likely see a handful of counties added to this map.
