The fire close to where we live remains burning, but has been contained. FYI, we are okay!! Approximately 8,000 acres burnt in this fire yesterday. The local news media states approximately 54,000 acres in Oklahoma burnt yesterday alone.
The entire state is under a burn ban which was recently issued by our Governor because of the severe drought.
Latest news from Channel 9 OKC, several of the fires were caused by cigarette butts, burning garbage, catalytic converters, lightning and the worst; a damned arsonist. Acres have burned, many homes, and businesses destroyed. The temperatures are extreme, and 7 firefighters have been injured.
