Several structures were damaged and some residents were displaced from their homes after multiple wildfires broke out in Central Oklahoma, News On 6 reported on January 19.
People from three locations were ordered to temporarily relocate while firefighters fought the fire that started in Hiwassee and spread to Coyle. Fire crews battled three more fires after containing the first one, resulting in an estimated 1,300 acres of land burned and one house, several barns and other structures were reportedly damaged. Farmers in the affected area worked to secure their animals. Both lanes of Interstate 35 that were affected by the fire were closed by state patrols after vehicle accidents were reported. Residents returned to their homes after 6:00 p.m. the same day. Fire fighters experienced difficulty battling the fire due to strong winds.
