Big wildfire in Oklahoma became uncontrolled and threatens a small town


In Kansas, evacuations were underway in at least three communities. The National Weather Service warns conditions conducive to fire are forecast to occur in both states through Wednesday. “Dangerous weather conditions have resulted in fire outbreaks across the state this afternoon. This is a fluid situation with fire conditions continuing to worsen, and we can’t emphasize enough how important it is for everyone to be extremely careful with anything that could cause a spark” said George Geissler, director of Oklahoma Forestry Services. Fortunately  there were no injuries and only one abandoned building was lost to the flames. The 4 Warn Storm team forecasts Oklahoma will continue to be placed under a Red Flag Warning until midnight.
