Wildfires roar through Texoma

Several wildfires roared through Texoma Wednesday afternoon.  The large fire burned at the Comanche and Caddo County line is under control.  No injuries have been reported, but some structures burned.

It took about two and a half hours to contain the blaze.  At this time, fire officials say almost 1,000 acres were burned.  Bales of hay will continue to burn throughout the night, and firefighters are on the scene to monitor the fires, and prevent any flare ups.

The Apache Fire Chief says there have been reports of two suspicious individuals in the area of the Caddo and Comanche County line around 2:30 p.m..  They say that shortly after that, the fire started.  At this time the Chief says he believes the fire was arson.

No injuries have been reported, and no homes were lost.  However there have been reports that a car was burned, old abandoned structures, and perhaps a barn were burned, too.  There have also been some reports of cattle perishing in the fire.  At least 10 fire departments responded to the blaze, and it has been contained.
