Caddo County latest in Oklahoma to issue burn ban

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Caddo County has become the 31st Oklahoma county to issue a burn ban as the state faces continuing hot and dry conditions.

County commissioners notified Oklahoma Forestry Services of the ban on Friday.

The bans are largely in the northeastern part of the state - although five counties in northwestern Oklahoma and the Panhandle and three in southeastern Oklahoma have also declared bans.

State Forester George Geissler says the weather conditions have created a concern about potential wildfires. The Forestry Service reports a 140 acre fire was put out after being sparked by lightning on Thursday. No injuries were reported.
