Tulsa County Extends Burn Ban Again
The rains aren't enough to end the burn ban in Tulsa County. Even with the weekend rainfall, the burn ban in Tulsa County will continue. Commissioners voted to extend the outdoor burning prohibition another week based on a recommendation from fire chiefs and the Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency. Deputy Director Joe Kralicek says the rain wasn’t enough to make much of a dent in the drought conditions.
The situation will be re-assessed on Thursday, but for now, no grilling except for gas or electric on non-flammable surfaces. Industrial welding is allowed, but again, only on non-flammable surfaces.
