Fire Risk Still High In Oklahoma; 1 Blaze Contained

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Officials say a wildfire that prompted evacuations in parts of Oklahoma has been contained.

The Freedom Hill Fire Department says the fire that flared up near Mannford in northeastern Oklahoma is still burning Monday but has been contained. Officials say cooler temperatures and a light rain overnight helped slow the fire, which scorched more than 90 square miles on Sunday.

The National Weather Service says the fire risk remains very high with triple-digit temperatures possible Monday, but rain is predicted later in the week.

Multiple fires popped up in Oklahoma throughout the weekend and one blaze is being investigated as a possible arson. Witnesses told Oklahoma County sheriff’s deputies they saw a man throwing a lighted newspaper from a black Ford pickup, but no arrests have been made.
