Outdoor Burning Discouraged By State Forestry Division
Outdoor burning is highly discouraged, officials with the State Forestry Division said. From March 10 through 12, five wildfires were reported in Sequoyah County with one shed being damaged.
Roger Wilhite, Forest Ranger and Crew Chief with the Forestry Office in Sallisaw, said the county is not under a burn ban or Red Flag Warning. Even though rain over the weekend may lessen the dan- ger of wildfire, residents are reminded that dead plant material may still burn.
