Kentucky firefighters help battle blazes in Oklahoma
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – Forestry officials say a dozen firefighters from Kentucky are in Oklahoma to help battle wildfires there.
WKYT-TV reports that while Kentucky is experiencing a below average number of fires so far, some of its firefighters are staying busy.
Chad Brothers, a firefighter from Marion, says his team brought two bulldozers and three engines to help with the Selman fire in Woodward, Oklahoma. Wildfires there have destroyed nearly 50,000 acres.
Brothers and his team arrived in Oklahoma on Friday morning. They’re expecting to stay for a couple of weeks.
Brothers said a lot of homes have been lost, equipment has burned and livestock has been killed.
