** - These statistics are from Fire Departments that have reported their information on the Oklahoma Forestry Services web-based Fire Reporting System.  Totals do not reflect the total acres burned or total number of fires that have occurred in Oklahoma. 

Statewide Discussion:  No reports of unusual fire activity or requests for State assistance were received during the reporting period.  Live herbaceous and woody vegetation has greened up across the entire state, reducing fire danger to the point where fire control will not be an issue.

The Fire Situation Report will be suspended as of today, April 6th, and will resume when significant wildfire danger returns to Oklahoma.

No County Burn Bans are currently in effect.  Click on the link listed below for the latest and most current Burn Ban information:  http://www.forestry.ok.gov/burn-ban-information
