Statewide Discussion: Fire danger today will again be at a minimum. A warming period starting tomorrow and running for the next several days is forecast. As snow cover melts and wildland fuel moistures begin to dwindle, fire danger will again start to rise.

Fire control problems are not anticipated anywhere in Oklahoma today.

As of 8:00 a.m. this morning, five counties remain under a County Commissioner’s Burn Ban. For information concerning burn bans click on the following link:
