Oklahoma County Issues Burn Ban (Jul 19, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma County has issued a 30-day burn ban, effective immediately.

The Oklahoma County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously Thursday to approve a resolution that bans all outdoor burning in the county.

Oklahoma City television station KOCO reports that the ban makes it illegal for anyone to set fires outsides, build a campfire or bonfire or to burn trash.

Anyone who violates the burn ban will face up to a $500 fine and a year in jail.

The ban does not prohibit the use of charcoal or gas grills.
