OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – While rain is still not in the immediate forecast, county leaders across the state are enacting burn bans.
Currently, Oklahoma Forestry Services has several counties under burn bans:
Under the Oklahoma statute, it is unlawful for any person to set fire to any forest, grass, range, crop, or other wildlands. It is also prohibited from building a campfire, bonfire, or to burn trash.
Anyone who violates a burn ban can be found guilty of a misdemeanor, which is punishable by a $1,000 fine or one year in prison.
