No Activity Reported

** - 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 anticipated today.

Wetting rains over the weekend will temper fire danger through the first half of the work week. Precipitation chances and relative humidity values well above critical levels slide back into Oklahoma mid-week retaining low fire danger across Oklahoma through the end of the week.

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).
