Evacuations ordered for residents in northwestern Oklahoma as wildfires continue to burn

More than 200,000 acres have burned across the state since Thursday, including large fires in Woodward and Dewey counties that have prompted numerous evacuations.

The Oklahoma Forestry Services says residents in Seiling, Taloga and Putnam should evacuate immediately Friday afternoon.

Officials say Seiling residents should travel north or east – away from the fire.

Taloga and Putnam residents should go south to avoid the fire.
