On Tuesday afternoon, Governor Mary Fallen is lifting the burn ban on 33 counties in the central and northern parts of the state.

The Oklahoma Forestry Service says state-issued burn bans remain in effect for the panhandle as well as 25 counties in southwest, south-central and south-eastern Oklahoma.

Spokesperson Michelle Finch-Walker says there could still be more burn bans before next spring.

“We got a little bit of a reprieve with some rainfall, but our winter is predicted to be continued drive and goodness we need rain across the state.”

Finch-Walker also urges caution as dry, windy conditions across the state could still fan any flames which might get out of control.

County Commissioners can still issue burn bans which can be found at forestry.ok.gov.
