Oklahoma City, Okla. - The Freedom Hill Fire Department says the fire that flared up near Mannford in northeastern Oklahoma is still burning Monday but has been contained. Officials say cooler temperatures and a light rain overnight helped slow the fire, which scorched more than 90 square miles on Sunday.
The National Weather Service says the fire risk remains very high with triple-digit temperatures possible Monday, but rain is predicted later in the week.
Multiple fires popped up in Oklahoma throughout the weekend and one blaze is being investigated as a possible arson. Witnesses told Oklahoma County sheriff's deputies they saw a man throwing a lighted newspaper from a black Ford pickup, but no arrests have been made.
