The weekend wildfire that swept through a rural swath of Pawnee County, damaging or destroying at least 40 structures and charring thousands of acres, was brought under control Tuesday afternoon but not before it did some damage. Pawnee County Emergency Management Director Mark Randell said the fire began Sunday and quickly gained strength. Dozens of firefighters were dispatched to fight the blaze, which is estimated to have burned at least 15,000 acres in northern Oklahoma.
