Burn ban extended into February

For the third straight time, The Logan County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) have extended the county-wide burn ban for another two weeks.

The ban is extended until Feb. 11. At that time or before, Commissioners could decide to cancel or extend the ban.

By state statue, the burn ban can only be issued by commissioners up to 14 days.

As of Friday, Logan County remained in a severe drought, according to Oklahoma Forestry Services.

With the county ban, it is unlawful for any person to set fire to any forest, grass, range, crop or other wild lands, or to build a campfire or bonfire, or to bum trash or other material that may cause a forest, grass, range, crop, or other wild lands fire.

The City of Guthrie also remains in a burn ban. Related articleBurn ban in place within city limits
