Wildfire At Ft. Supply Lake

KSCB News - September 7, 2010 12:00 am

A wildfire burning near Fort Supply

Lake in northwestern Oklahoma led to the evacuation of about 30

homes and 120 camp sites.

Woodward County Emergency Management director Matt Lehenbauer

says about 600 people were forced to leave the area Monday and one

home was destroyed. He says the only injury was to a firefighter

who is recovering from heat exhaustion.

Lehenbauer says fighting the 300-acre fire was made more

difficult by southwesterly winds that were blowing at about 40

miles per hour.

He says the cause of the fire is under investigation, but that

it may have been started by a campfire that got out of control.
