Oklahoma residents seeking nonemergency disaster or health and human service information are asked to call 211. Services are available 24 hours a day. Callers should use 911 only for emergencies, officials said.

The Oklahoma County sheriff's office Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 155 announced Wednesday it is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for starting the Luther wildfire Friday. FOP members also are seeking pledges to increase the reward. The total reward now stands at $1,500.

“We are at a point where we really need information from the public,” Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel said in statement released Wednesday. “The only way we are going to solve this case is if someone comes forward and gives us information that will lead to the arrest of the individual who committed this horrendous crime.”

Anyone who wants to make a pledge can contact Sgt. Larry Grant, FOP Lodge 155 president, at or 820-2469.
