Wildfire cleanup begins

(AP) _  People who live in and around Oklahoma City have been returning to their fire-ravaged neighborhoods to assess the damage and begin cleaning up.

Gov. Mary Fallin and U.S. Rep. James Lankford have toured Harrah, where 30 homes were destroyed Friday.

Fallin told homeowners Saturday to contact relief organizations and take advantage of other emergency services while they wait for their insurance claims.

Wildfires have burned 49 homes in Oklahoma in all.

City council member Cass Smith says you don't realize how much nothing is until you have nothing. He and friends were picking through the rubble of his home for jewelry and other valuables.
