The Tulsa County Burn Ban Continues, Despite Action to Lift the State Ban
The governor lifts the burn ban issued by her office for Tulsa County and several other counties across the state, but you still can’t burn outdoors here. Tulsa County leaders, on advice of area fire department chiefs, are continuing the ban. Deputy Emergency Manager Jamie Ott says despite recent rains, it’s still too dry.
You may use charcoal, gas, and electric grills but only on non-flammable surfaces. The ban will be re-evaluated on Thursday.
