Wildfires Force Evacuations; Warnings Continue


A wide area of Oklahoma remains under a ‘Red Flag Warning’ today, due to windy, dry conditions. This IS to be taken seriously.

Large wildfires in northwest Oklahoma have forced the evacuation of several cities Monday, including Laverne, Buffalo, Gate and Fort Supply. Those evacuated are being told not to return to their homes as the fires have spread, and none appear to be contained. No injuries have been reported, but structures HAVE burned.

More than 10,000 acres have been consumed in Oklahoma, and another 40,000 have been charred in Kansas.
