Gov. Mary Fallin has declared a state emergency across Oklahoma and ordered a burn ban in 36 counties in western Oklahoma, which includes almost every county in the region.
The burn ban prohibits any outdoor burning or the use of fireworks in the listed counties, which include Caddo, Comanche, Cotton, Grady, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Kiowa and Tillman counties; Stephens County is not included.
Jackson County commissioners had already imposed a burn ban after a massive grass fire burned several hundred acres west of Altus.
Sunday’s fire was reported at 2:15 p.m. day along the west side of the Salt Fork of the Red River about three-fourths of a mile south of U.S. 62 west of Altus.
Jerry Abbott, Altus fire chief, said the blaze started out as a controlled burn but was spread and intensified by the combination of high winds and low humidity. A total of 800-900 acres burned in the fire, which was responded to byfirefighters from Altus and other departments in Jackson and Tillman counties who brought 26 pieces of fire apparatus. Abbott said firefighters were on the scene until around 3:30 a.m. Monday. Jackson County brought in three road graders and a track loader to assist with firefighting efforts.
