** - 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 significant fire activity is expected today in Oklahoma. Continued rain in the Panhandle and northwestern counties as well as isolated showers and elevated relative humidity will suppress fire danger in western Oklahoma today. Drying conditions will continue in south-central and southeastern counties with temperatures in the mid to upper 80°’s and relative humidity values in the low 30% bracket; however light winds today will limit fire growth.

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).
