FIRE DEPARTMENT STATISTICS** FROM for Time Period 11/21/13 thru 11/22/13

No fires reported yesterday.

** - 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. Significant moisture was received in roughly the southeastern one-third of Oklahoma. Many other areas of the State received trace amounts of rainfall or a wintery mix.

Fire control problems are not expected anywhere in Oklahoma today or through the weekend. Expected high relative humidity will significantly reduce the chance of problem fire behavior. In addition, any moisture received today thru Sunday will further reduce fire danger concerns.

No Burn Bans are currently in effect. For information concerning burn bans click on the following link:

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