Ft Supply Wildfires Under Control
09/08/2010

Crews have contained two wildfires

that burned about 1,500 acres in northwestern Oklahoma.

Woodward County Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer

said Tuesday firefighters were able to control the fires, including

one that burned about 1,200 acres near Mooreland, after a cold

front blew through the area late Monday. He says that fire and

another one near Fort Supply Lake were under control about 2 a.m.

Lehenbauer says one firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and

about 600 people were evacuated in the Fort Supply Lake blaze.

Lehenbauer says residents returned about 6:30 p.m. Monday.

In southeast Oklahoma, a grass fire that burned an estimated

1,000 acres in McIntosh County was under control Tuesday afternoon.

Emergency Management Director Harry Trottier III says one

firefighter was overcome by smoke but is OK, and some barns and

storage buildings were destroyed.
