Oklahoma Forestry Services bracing for busy winter fire season
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Oklahoma Forestry Services are predicting a busy winter fire season.
The agency is bracing for a busy end to 2017 and even worse conditions in early 2018 as temperatures are predicted to be above normal and the state continues to be passed over by precipitation.
“This increased availability of fuels typically means that any fire that starts has the potential to grow large very quickly under fire weather conditions,” said Mark Goeller, Fire Management Chief for Oklahoma Forestry Services.
Oklahomans are asked to prepare their properties to make them more defensible from wildfires. Learn how here:
