CARTER COUNTY -- In Carter County, officials reported at least 15 fires in progress and "several homes" destroyed.

"I'm so busy my head's spinning," said Ed Reed, Carter County Emergency Management director. "I've been doing fire suppression for more than 18 years, and I've never seen conditions so bad before. We've got 54 mile per hour winds and at least 13 fires going at the same time."


Homes were reportedly destroyed in the Graham area southeast of Ratliff City. Fires were also raging in Tatums, Ratliff City, Healdton, and Fox.
