Fires Forcing Evacuations in Panhandle (Apr 03, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Homes are being evacuated in Guymon as wildfires again are popping up across Oklahoma, fueled by warm and windy conditions.
State Emergency Management Department spokeswoman Michelann Ooten said late Sunday afternoon that homes in the southern portion of Guymon, the largest town in the Panhandle, are being evacuated because of a fire about six miles west of Guymon along U.S. Highway 54.
Another fire is burning near Lake Keystone, about seven miles west of Sand Springs in Tulsa County. Ooten says a helicopter has been called in to help fight that fire and that some homes are threatened, but didn't have more details.
In Le Flore County in southeastern Oklahoma, a fire is burning south of State Highway 112 between Cameron and Rock Island, although the highway remains open.
