Area stands are open, and last year’s burn ban that prohibited the discharge of fireworks in Comanche County isn’t in effect, but Lawton fire officials are hoping citizens still take plenty of caution this Fourth of July.

Wildlife Refuge Firefighters Join the Fight in Colorado

LAWTON, Okla. — The Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge has been tapped to assist Colorado with more than half a dozen wild land fires in the state. Despite the assistance of more than 2,000 local and federal firefighters, the blaze has continued to grow since June 10.

Jeremiah Phillips, Assistant Fire Manager Officer, said the refuge sent its first team of four, along with its 900 gallon heavy engine, on June 14 to begin assistance on the Little Sand Fire. While on location, Phillips said his crews will work on severity assignments – working in the areas where support is needed the most – which he said is  “basically doing what out of town folks did for us last year (during the Medicine Park fire).”

Per protocol, Phillips said each crew there will work on-scene for 14 days before being relieved. The next group is set to travel up to Colorado on June 29 and will begin its two-week shift the following day.
