BREAKING NEWS: In spite of today's Red Flag Fire Warning, Tulsa County Commissioners have allowed the county's burn ban to expire.
County spokesman Michael Willis says the fire chiefs in the county have not been fighting as many wildfires.
Additionally, Willis says rain is in the forecast for later this week.
Those two factors combined put the county outside the criteria for a burn ban.
Consequently, says Willis, county emergency management staff recommended letting the burn ban expire.
Willis goes on to say that Tulsa County Commissioners could reinstate the ban if the rain doesn't materialize.
