Woman found dead, burned in Oklahoma wildfire

There also are at least a dozen wildfires in Texas, including a 12 square mile (31 square kilometer) fire in Wheeler County in the Panhandle.

Meteorologist Doug Speheger says the designation is predicated on a mixture of low humidity and strong winds which will be the most peculiar.

Firefighters sent by the U.S. Forest Service are fighting one fire that's burned more than 245,000 acres (990 sq. kilometers) near Leedey, about 110 miles (180 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City. Another blaze has burnt nearly 68,000 meters (275 Blvd km) near Woodward, about 20 miles (32 km) north west of Leedey.

Authorities say the fires killed two people and injured seven others.

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 vehicle outside a home near Seiling.

The Oklahoma Forestry Services says another wildfire in northwestern Oklahoma has burned more than 375 square miles.

Additional details have not been released and Cain said she has no further information on the deaths.

The fires continued burning Monday and the National Weather Service issued Red Flag Fire warnings for the region through Tuesday.
