LAWTON - The Board of Comanche County Commissioners has approved on Thursday a burn ban, which will remain in effect until Jan. 13

The ban forbids people from setting fire to any forest, grass, range, crop or other wildland, county officials said in a news release. Campfires and bonfires are also prohibited, along with burning rubbish or other material that could start a fire. 

Officials will revisit the issue on or before Jan. 13 to discuss whether they should extend the ban.
