TULSA - A seven-day burn ban is now in effect for Tulsa County.
County commissioners met Monday, passing a resolution to enact the ban immediately.
The ban prohibits all outdoor burning in the county, including controlled burns and bonfires, with the exception of outdoor grilling with electric or gas grills. Grilling, however, must be done over gravel, concrete or another non-flammable surface.
Commissioners will consider an addition burn ban March 3 during their regularly scheduled meeting.
Burn bans are also in effect for Creek, Okmulgee, Pittsburg, Rogers, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties.
