FEMA teams to survey Oklahoma

Oklahoma City (AP) _ Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will begin inspection tours Tuesday of areas where homes were destroyed by Oklahoma wildfires last week.  Spokeswoman Michelann Ooten of the State Emergency Management Department says the inspectors will work to gauge the extent of uninsured loss as this will determine the extent of federal disaster aid that may be made available.

State officials have said 100 to 150 homes were destroyed statewide by fires that began in dry, windy conditions last Thursday. The Midwest City area and portions of southern Oklahomawere especially hard hit.
