Smoke settling in Ponca City is from controlled burns

Team Radio Marketing Group - April 11, 2017 4:03 pm

Ponca City’s Emergency Management Director Paula Cain has responded to multiple inquiries today about smoke in Ponca City and the surrounding area.

“Due to the large number of controlled burns taking place and the light wind, smoke is drifting into town and settling,  and is worse than normal,” Cain said.  “Numerous calls have resulted.  Some people with breathing problems might want to avoid being outdoors.  If conditions continue to worsen, some traffic issues could result.  Use caution when driving.”
