LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A Lawton company is hosting a hiring fair Tuesday and Wednesday of this week in hopes of hiring 197 people.

The line was out the door Tuesday morning at the Comanche County Fairgrounds for the Serco Job Fair.  People applying for a job could interview on the spot, complete a background check and leave as a new employee. Site manager of the Lawton Serco facility Pamela McCoin said the company is hiring for an entry level clerk position and wants as many applicants as possible.

"We want to attract people who really want to work and want to get started in a job and have something to treat as a career as opposed to just a short term job,” McCoin said. “So we're looking for those people who want to start their career and can see long term all of our opportunities."

McCoin said even though the jobs being offered are entry level, they offer room to grow within the company. The hiring fair continues Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Prairie Building at the Comanche County Fairgrounds. Applicants are asked to bring a current resume and dress business casual.

    Oklahoma City fire officials are warning people to make sure they install smoke detectors in their home after battling 54 structure fires so far this month. The 54th fire was yesterday afternoon and was spotted by neighbors who called 911. Two people were inside the home asleep at the time. They made it out safely, and the blaze was put out but authorities say the smoke detectors in the home did not have batteries.
