Fallin Lifts Burn Ban for Final 33 Counties

Governor Mary Fallin

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has lifted a governor's burn ban in the final 33 counties that were covered by the ban - although one county-issued ban remains in place.

The governor announced Thursday that recent rains, cooler temperatures and higher humidities have reduced the chance of wildfire in the state - but said Oklahomans should remain cautious with all outdoor burning.

A county-issued burn ban remains in effect in Cimarron County in the far western Oklahoma Panhandle.
