    Someone at work told me KFOR is reporting a Stillwater wild fire. Any truth to this? Can't find anything on NewsOK.com either.

    Wow, I hope they get that out soon...looks like it could spread really far, really quickly.

    It is only about a mile east of my house. Hope it doesn't move west.

    It is from hwy 51 clear over to Lakeview along Fairgrounds rd.

    It is still blazing. Sitting with my father in law seeing if it spreads enough to move cattle.

    The fire is closer to being brought under control. We have spent a lot of time out there today. Unfortunately some homes were lost but we were able to same some.

    Also a huge thanks to the citizens of Stillwater. Since I got back to the station there has been a continuous line of people coming to the station to donate water and gatorade.

    I took this one about an hour after it got started. Looked like someone dropped a bomb.

    It had to happen and doesn't get old.

    Yes, it's wildly inappropriate given the immediacy of the danger to some, but I can appreciate it.
    Anaranjado and Poke4Real like this.

    I didn't see it, but the Stillwater fire was on This Morning America this morning.

    Here's a photo of the aftermath of the fire on the east side of N. Fairgrounds Rd, about a half mile north of the fairgrounds:

    Maybe this explains why the power went off in Stillwater during the fire. This area to the east of the corner of E. McElroy and Fairgrounds Rd. also was struck bad.
