UPDATE: Fire Danger High In Texoma

Firefighters in Texoma are on alert as high fire danger returns to the area. A fire that started on Sunday in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge continues to burn. On Monday officials say it was about 75% contained. The cause of the fire has not been determined, but they say it started along a roadway. No structures have burned and none are being threatened at this time. All roads in that area have been reopened to traffic.

We also have an update on a grass fire that was put out Sunday night near the Archer and Baylor County line. The cause of that fire is still under investigation. It is estimated to have burned between 70 and 80 acres of land. No structures were threatened in that blaze. Multiple departments from both counties joined together to get those flames out.

A cold front moved through Texoma on Saturday night bringing dryer air with it along with gusty north winds that have raised the fire danger in the area again. Another front is expected to arrive on Thursday that will bring gusty winds again and no rain.
