Burn Ban Continues
You’ll have to delay outdoor burning for another week. Tulsa County officials have extended the burn ban for another week because of the dry conditions. Deputy Director of the Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency, Joe Kralicek, says for the most part you should not burn outdoors, but some exceptions are allowed, if you are cautious.
The exceptions allowed under the ban are gas or electric grilling on a non-flammable surface. Charcoal grilling isn’t allowed. Also, industrial welding is okay, but that also must be on a non-flammable surface. The situation will be re-assessed later this week, and next Monday, Tulsa County Commissioners will decide whether to end or extend the ban.
