Wildfires Devastate Oklahoma

Although some of the flames in Oklahoma have started to subside, forest fires had destroyed some 65 homes on Saturday morning as the blaze spread across 80 square miles. Oklahoma has seen 18 days of drought and 100-plus degree temperatures, fueling 12 wildfires and a state of emergency. Authorities are investigating reports that the fires were set deliberately by a man in a pickup truck who threw out burning newspapers.
