High winds and dry conditions kept firefighters busy Monday as they battled wildfires in Oklahoma City and Norman.

One person was treated for smoke inhalation in a southwest Oklahoma City fire that threatened several mobile homes, Oklahoma City Battalion Chief Brian Stanaland said.

The homes were evacuated, but the only structure that burned before firefighters put the flames out was abandoned, Stanaland said.

The fire started about 1:40 p.m. at 7901 S Council Road.

An abandoned home also burned in a fire that started about 3:10 p.m. near Norman, Deputy Chief Jim Bailey said.

The fire started in the home and spread to the grass and cedar trees around it.

Firefighters from Little Axe and Slaughterville also helped battle the blaze.

No injuries were reported in that fire.
