Fire crews worked through the weekend to contain a dozen wildfires in western and northwestern Oklahoma. Authorities say the fires killed two people and injured seven others.
Many of the fires ignited last week. Gusty winds and low humidity meant the flames spread rapidly through drought-stricken trees and brush, torching homes, buildings and more than 300,000 acres.
Emergency management officials say a 61-year-old man died from fire-related injuries near the town of Leedey, and a woman was killed in her car outside a home near Seiling.
