Wildfire rekindles on refuge

WICHITA MOUNTAINS WILDLIFE REFUGE, OK (KSWO) -A fire that originally started by a lightning strike Monday night and was contained Tuesday night rekindled at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.

Firefighters say the fire started up again around 11 a.m. and crews were still working to get it put out again. The fire already burned about 100 acres before fire crews on land and in the air put out the flames.

Refuge officials say two planes dropped water over the fire, which helped to get the fire contained.
