Governor Fallin updated on Logan County wildfire

Posted: Updated:
The governor of Oklahoma arrived Monday to survey the damage of Sunday's wildfire that claimed several homes and at least one life.

Governor Mary Fallin arrived at the command center around noon Monday. She received an update from firefighters fighting the flames before speaking with the media.

Governor Fallin said the state has put in a request with the federal government for a big air tanker out of Arizona. She said the tanker is the largest one that can deliver water.

Fallin said they're currently waiting to hear back from the US Department of Forestry.

So far, 2500 acres have been burned in the fire. Governor Fallin says all of the state's resources are being used to work the fire and she will be meeting with the Department of Forestry to discuss a possible burn bans.

Right now they are doing flyovers to assess the damage and see where the fire is traveling.
