** - 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 control issues are anticipated today. Rainfall stretching from southwest to northeast across Oklahoma in the evening and overnight hours provided variable amounts of precipitation and most areas in that band receiving a wetting rain. Rain chances today for the eastern half of Oklahoma should mitigate fire danger concerns in that area for today.

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).
