OT: 6-23, 3:35 pm Cement Wildfire Threatening Homes

Okiedawn OK Zone 7June 23, 2011

I don't know if anyone here lives near Cement or has loved ones there, but if so this is an item of critical interest.

A wildfire east of Cement is threatening homes there. The fire line runs for at least a half-mile.

Oh my. I hope they are able to get this under control! I used to know a lot of people in the Cement area, although my best friend has since moved to AZ.
The fires here in AZ are getting a little better, although still burning. I'm worried about the holiday weekend, since they just legalized fireworks and I've been seeing fireworks stands everywhere.
Our drought situation is so critical from AZ to OK/ west TX. I hope we break the drought and start getting some good rains soon, although that is going to mean awful flooding for those burned areas.
