Firefighters are battling wildfires in Oklahoma as the flames destroy dozens of homes and buildings in the town of Luther. Deputies are looking into claims of someone in a pickup truck
throwing out newspapers that had been set on fire. The number of wildfires this year could be the worst in state history. Molina said that there is a red flag warning issued for Oklahoma because of the continued dry conditions and gusty winds.
