 Monday, March 14, 2011

State Highway 9 reopened but residents are returning to find homes and barns destroyed by a large wildfire near Goldsby. The wildfire started Friday morning, and was pushed for miles by strong winds. While it did burn closer to Riverwind Casino, the casino was not in danger and operated as usual. The wildfire started around 11 a.m. about two miles west of Interstate 35, and was pushed by strong winds. McClain County Sheriff Don Hewett said there are actually two fires that started at two separate locations two miles apart.
