Burn Ban Effective Immediately
Almost as soon as the burn ban was announced a wildfire in Muldrow, burning over an acre field and round hay bales, resulted in both the Muldrow and Roland Fire Departments being dispatched. They were still fighting the wildfire at 11:30 a.m. Thursday. The fire was reported to be close to a house and shed.
On Wednesday night, a wildfire near Liberty, north of Roland, was fought for about two hours and ex- tinguished by the Liberty and Roland Fire Departments. On Tuesday, Oklahoma Forestry personnel and firefighters with the Redland, Muldrow, Roland and Brent Fire Departments battled two blazes that burned about sixty acres.
