Two homes and a barn also were threatened by fire Sunday in Haydenville and two structures were threatened by a blaze six miles northeast of Seminole, Cain said. No evacuations were required, she said.

A fire south of Interstate 40 near Henryetta burned a swath 2 1/2 miles long and 1 1/2 miles wide, but no structures were lost, Cain said.

A wildfire seven miles south of Stroud was being mopped up by sundown and fires were also reported in Creek, Grant and Lincoln counties, she said.

Another wildfire that began Wednesday morning near Cooperton is still burning, and has scorched across about 28,000 acres, Cain said.
