Investigators ID suspects in Luther wildfire

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office says it's identified suspects in the August wildfire that burned more than 4 square miles in Luther.

Authorities say they've turned the case over to the Oklahoma attorney general's office for consideration by a multicounty grand jury. The sheriff's office did not name the suspects it's identified.

More than 50 homes and buildings were destroyed in the Aug. 3 fire in Luther. Authorities believe the blaze was intentionally set, and a witness reported seeing a man in a black Ford truck set the fire.

On Tuesday, the sheriff's office said it'd received more than 50 tips in investigating the suspected arson.
