Oklahoma Forestry Services officials have reported a warning of an increased fire danger throughout the state. The warm temperatures and the low humidity are predicted to expand burning conditions throughout the week. Comanche County is currently not under a burn ban; however, Western Oklahoma and the panhandle is under a burn ban put in place by the Governor. Major and Grant County are under burns issued by the county. In the event a major fire is started, the U.S. Forest Service is providing aircraft and with the Oklahoma National guard has their helicopters ready to help if necessary. Wildfires can be a serious problem. When dealing with a fire, be smart and do the appropriate things to keep the fire contained and everyone safe.
