Oklahoma Forestry Services warns fire danger high

ENID, Okla. — Oklahoma Forestry Services are warning that the danger of wildfires will be high across the state through the weekend.

Forestry officials say current weather conditions create critical fire weather that will be present across the state starting Wednesday and most likely continue until the weekend.

Warmer temperatures, gusty winds and low relative humidity has also led officials to declare a red flag warning for much of the state and residents are encouraged to avoid outdoor burning until moisture returns to the state.

The latest information on burn bans and wildfire situation reports can be found at www.forestry.ok.gov.
