Wildfires break out across Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Firefighters in parts of Oklahoma are working to contain a number of wildfires.
 
Most of the state was under a red flag warning Friday, including in Muskogee, where a nearby wildfire led officials to send pupils home from an elementary school.
 
In Oklahoma City, a trash fire spread near Interstate 44 and Martin Luther King, Junior Boulevard. Firefighters were able to put out an unoccupied home where the fire spread. Oklahoma City Battalion Chief Brian Stanaland says firefighters were also able to put out a fire at two greenhouses near Memorial Road and Santa Fe Avenue. Nobody was injured and no chemicals or fertilizers were disturbed.
 
In Edmond, firefighters from Oakcliff and Edmond worked to control a blaze in the vicinity of South Midwest Boulevard and East Simmons Road.
