ople from all over central Oklahoma came to Cory’s Cabin, the family said.

"Our daughter got married out here,” Tammy England said. "It has a lot of memories in it.”

The cabin sat in front of the family’s home. The flames swept through in a matter of minutes, burning everything else in sight, but their house was spared, said Jerry England. Many weren’t so lucky, he said.

Tammy England was at home with her two grandchildren when she saw the smoke. "It hit so quick there was no time to do anything,” she said.

She got the children in the car and fled.

Fifteen minutes later she came back to find the cabin and other outbuildings around her home burned to the ground.

"It was terrifying,” she said.

The family doesn’t yet know if they’ll rebuild the cabin, but the memories they have from there are something not even the fire could take away, they said.
