(GDH)A Firehawk helicopter firefighting crew from Leesburg, Florida has staged at Guymon Municipal Airport at the call of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forestry Department. The crew stands ready in case of a wildfire. On Saturday, March 3, a large portion of the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles were placed under elevated to critical fire weather conditions, with the greatest fire threat to come on Sunday, March 4. Governor Mary Fallin has issued a governor’s burn ban for Cimarron, Texas, Beaver, Harper, Woods, Woodward, Ellis, Dewey, Roger Mills, Custer, Beckham, Washita, Greer, Kiowa, Harmon and Jackson Counties. The ban includes a ban on outdoor campfires and bonfires.
