State officials said dry conditions and strong winds have combined to create potential fire dangers.

A wildfire in northwestern Oklahoma has burned more than 120,000 acres (485 sq. kilometers) and forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes. Woodward County Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbaur said Friday that the fires have destroyed several homes near Woodward, about 125 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

The state chief medical examiner's office reported a 61-year-old man died Thursday in Roger MIlls County as a result of injuries sustained in a fire that began southeast of Leedey, the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said.

A relief fund has been established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation to help Cattlemen who have been affected by on-going wildfires in western Oklahoma.

About 1,000 people have left the Vici area - a town more than 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. Burn bans issued by the governor or by county officials are in place in the western third of Oklahoma and in the Panhandle.
