A fire that began near Woodward, about 20 miles north of Leedey, has burned almost 68,000 acres and is 45 percent contained.

Shawna Hartman with the state forestry office says the potential for unsafe wildfires is the worst it's been in a decade.

Officials report that "normal" tactics to fight the fires aren't working in these abnormal conditions and at least one Type 6 Engine was burned and destroyed April 12.

- Officials say residents of a small southwestern Oklahoma town have returned to their homes after being ordered to evacuate due to a wildfire threat.

Milder weather conditions in northwestern New Mexico could help firefighters who have been keeping a pair of wildfires on a mountain and a nearby butte largely in check despite strong winds.

In a briefing, state fire management chief Mark Goeller said firefighters focused on specific hotspots because critical fire conditions could worsen this week.

9 out of the 20 Wildland firefighters deployed to assist with the fire in Northwest Oklahoma, left out of Waccasassa Forestry Center offices Tuesday afternoon. The heaviest concentration of the fire was near the Canton Y about eight miles southeast of Seiling.

As KFOR reports, fire crews from neighboring states like Louisiana and Arkansas-and as far away as Florida-sped toward the Sooner State and the Lone Star State to try to quell the blazes.

"If you looked at that fire weather forecast.it should scare the hell out of you", Deb Beard said during a briefing Tuesday posted on Oklahoma Forestry Service's Facebook page. A sheriff's patrol auto also went up in flames.

Forecasters are predicting rain in western Oklahoma beginning Friday. At this time, the shelter has no people staying there.
