As fire crews respond and work to put out a fire in central Oklahoma, fire crews across the state were racing to extinguish large fires of their own.

The fire is east of Woodward near Highway 412. This fire flared up on Sunday as well. Woods, Alfalfa and Beaver County departments are all responding to put out the fire.
