SLAUGHTERVILLE, Okla.– Just two days after a massive wildfire tore through the town of Slaughterville, destroying dozens of homes and thousands of acres, the fire department is issuing a thank you to the state.
Officials at the Slaughterville Fire Department say they are overwhelmed by the support that has been given to the firefighters over the last couple of days.
In fact, they are at capacity when it comes to food and water donations from the surrounding community.
The department is now asking the community to focus their generous efforts on the families who lost everything in the blaze.
Donations are being accepted at the Slaughterville Baptist Church.
As of Sunday afternoon, crews say they are battling just a few hot spots and flare ups but will keep a watchful eye to make sure the fire does not rekindle.
