Statewide Discussion: No unusual fire activity was reported or requests for State assistance were received from outside of the Protection Area over the Memorial Day Weekend. Substantial rainfall has occurred over a large portion of Oklahoma which will allow green-up of live wildland fuels. As a result, fire danger will be mitigated for the next several days in all but a few locations.

Fire control problems are not anticipated anywhere in Oklahoma today.SPECIAL NOTE TO THE PUBLIC: A Governor’s Burn Ban is in effect for a large part of Oklahoma. For more Information click on the following link: http://www.forestry.ok.gov/burn-ban-information

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