Wildfire cuts Glencoe in half
Saturday afternoon wildfires changed the landscape of Glencoe by literally dividing the town in half.
Fire crews as well as land owners and even Oklahoma National Guard aircraft raced to get the fire under control before it wiped the town off the map.
A wind shift later in the evening changed the fire from a mile-wide, six-mile long fire to a six-mile wide fire with nothing but dry grass and trees to keep it going.
Fire crews were able to make a stand in front of the fire and keep it contained just before night fall.
