Wildfire bypasses Logan County couple

(Continued)

GUTHRIE, Okla. —

Trees nearby went up in flames as one of their neighbors was busy doing what he could to protect his property. Barber said they had no electricity or running water. They were wondering about shelter.
Sunday evening, American Red Cross Oklahoma volunteers were responding to the reported 300- to 500-acre wildfire, and reported at least one home on fire in Logan County, regional spokesman Ken Garcia said. The Red Cross was also responding to fires in the vicinity of Altus and Stillwater, Garcia said. A wildfire also ranged across a reported 11-mile long area east of Mooreland Sunday afternoon in Woodward County.
Information on shelters was not immediately available.
Highs in the 90s and brisk winds fueled the fires across the state Sunday.
