Oklahoma emergency managers: At least 24 wildfires reported

Oklahoma emergency managers: At least 24 wildfires reported
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Emergency managers in Oklahoma say strong wind gusts and bone-dry conditions have contributed to at least two-dozen wildfires and have put much of the state at risk for more blazes this weekend.
The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management says forecasters have issued a red flag warning for northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas until Saturday evening.
The National Weather Service says strong, gusty south winds are expected over parts of the neighboring states as humidity values fall below 20 percent to 25 percent. Burn bans are already in effect in some counties.
About 100 Norman residents were allowed to return to their homes late Friday after a wildfire broke around midday near Lake Thunderbird and threatened 80 to 100 homes.
No injuries were reported.
