News 9 KWTV says wildfire prompted mandatory evacuations in Norman, OK: Torrans LN, Prairie LN, Mary LN, Tallywood, Mystic Isle & Bethel RD E. of 108th Ave NE.

Dense vegetation and 30 mph wind gusts making it extremely difficult.

Forestry Fire has requested State Emergency
Oklahoma County Fire is on it
State Emergency Mutual Aid is on it
Norman, Little Axe and Slaughterville is on it.

All on OKWIN system. Site 8 Oklahoma City

At the time of this posting they are building task force.

Update: judging by radio traffic looks like this fire will mostly be fought by aircraft. Too dense vegetation for fire engines.

Hope and pray that this fire isn't a jumper. Lincoln County Emergency Mutual Aid has been reporting smoke.
