LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Fire crews were called to the scene of outside fire around 7:00 a.m. It broke out south of Lawton near Bishop and Wedgewood.

Our photographer on scene says it appeared to be a bunch of trash out in the yard that was on fire. But that there was no damage to any homes, although he does say

the fire came close to reaching a light pole and a tree. You can county on your 7News team to keep you updated as we learn more.

Julius Jones is scheduled to be executed this afternoon at 4:00 p.m. Governor Kevin Stitt basically four options in front of him when it comes to the future of Jones

One, he could deny clemency and let the execution go forward. Two, he could grant clemency and change his sentence to life in prison.

Three, he could grant clemency and give Jones the possibility of parole. And finally, he could just not take any action at all.

Once again, it should be noted that twice now the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole board has recommended sparing Jones’ life.
