TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa County's Board of Commissioners extended a county-wide burn ban for an additional seven days during their meeting Monday morning.

Officials said despite the sleet and snow which fell Sunday and early Monday, once it all melts it will only equate to .34-inch of water and more moisture is needed.

Under a burn ban it will be illegal to burn trash or conduct a controlled burn. Gas and electric grills are still allowed if they are used on a concrete or non-flammable surface such as gravel.
