Over 93,000 acres have burned in Oklahoma as a result of a wildfire that started last Friday, spurring a statewide burn ban along with a State of Emergency for every county. One person has been reported dead while countless others are without homes.

The Salvation Army continues to serve those impacted by the disaster with food, drinks and spiritual care. This includes providing physical care for the emergency personnel as they continue battling the blaze.
