OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) - Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has a fire danger warning for everyone in the Sooner state on Thursday.

She says "We know from past experience that everyone doing their part can have an effect. Simple, everyday activities like welding, charcoal grilling or campfires should be postponed until conditions improve." 

Fallin says Oklahoma Forestry Services and National Guard have crews on standby to help with fires that may break out. The Oklahoma Emergency Management Operations Center has also been activated.
