Since March 6, wildfires driven by strong winds burned more than 782,000 acres in Oklahoma. In the northwest, fires that killed thousands of head of livestock and destroyed at least eight homes were 74 percent contained, according to the Oklahoma Forestry Services. The Starbuck fire, which crossed the state line into Kansas, consumed 34 homes and more than 100 outbuildings. Nineteen Oklahoma counties had bans on outdoor burning.
