FIRE DEPARTMENT STATISTICS** from recorded on 11/12/15 thru 11/13/15

 No fire activity reported on the on-line system yesterday.


** - 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:  Fire danger will be high to very high across Oklahoma today and tomorrow.  Relative humidity values in the low 20% to 30% range are expected with temperatures in the 60-70 degree range.  Southerly winds are forecast each day from 10-20 mph with higher gusts.  The hard freeze that occurred overnight in much of the state will allow fine fuels to fully cure and increase their availability to burn.  Any fire starting today or tomorrow in fully cured fuels has the potential to burn intensely with moderate to rapid rates of spread.

There are no Burn Bans currently in effect in Oklahoma.  For the most current information on Burn Bans click on the following link:
