** - These statistics are from Fire Departments that have recorded 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 fire activity anticipated anywhere in the state today.
Adequate rainfall has either occurred in the last 24 hours or will be occurring very soon that will mitigate fire danger for days to come.
With the reduction in fire danger, we will suspend issuance of the Oklahoma Wildfire Situation Report until either fire danger increases or fire occurrence dictates.
 Remember…  ONLY YOU can prevent wildfires!  Enjoy Oklahoma’s wildlands responsibly.

Report any suspicious wildland fire activity on the Arson Tip Line:  1-866-662-7766 (1-866-NO ARSON).
