Fox at Five: undocumented children move in then out at Fort Sill

Posted: Updated:
While hundreds of illegal immigrant children have been removed from Fort Sill, their spots are quickly being taken by other kids.

The Department of Health and Human Services says 864 minors are still being housed at Fort Sill. Just under 1,000 have already been released to temporary sponsors.

Fort Sill began housing undocumented children in mid June.

On Monday, U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe and the other five Oklahoma congressmen released a statement against a defense department plan to keep using military shelters as temporary shelters.



Firefighters battled a fire at a mobile home park in Spencer Tuesday morning.

The fire reportedly broke out in a trailer in Oak Ridge Village around 5 a.m.
A man was sleeping on a couch in the living room when a smoke detector went off inside the home.

The man saw flames and quickly ran to his parents trailer to call firefighters.

Firefighters say the fire started in the back bedroom and was contained to that area. Fighters were able to put out the fire quickly, but there is smoke damage to the inside and outside of the trailer.



Somebody tell the weather to bring back last week's temperatures.

After a week with highs in the 70s and 80s, the Oklahoma summer is back with highs in the upper 90s and around 100.

Heat Advisory has been issued through Wednesday with highs near 100 and feels like temps up to 110. Stay in the A/C as much as possible, take frequent breaks if you must be outside and stay hydrated.  

Good news: rain relief is on the way, eventually.



The Oklahoma City division of the FBI is hoping you recognize a woman caught on camera during a bank robbery in NW Oklahoma City.

Law enforcement were called to the Bank of America near NW Expressway and N. May Ave just after 1 p.m. to a report of a bank robbery.

The FBI says a woman walked into the bank and handed the teller a note that demanded money. The note also said she had a gun, according to the FBI, but no weapon was seen. The teller followed the demands and the woman left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to the FBI, she left the bank in a silver Dodge Charger with large custom rims and low profile tires.

Anyone with information about the woman is asked to call the FBI at (405) 290-7770.



Just days before school is set to resume, districts are scrambling to fill positions.

Oklahoma City Public Schools is reporting that 153 teaching positions are still open and that staff are fielding calls and posting to social media to help recruit educators.


Recruitment Director Shannon Freeman says she doesn't have bonuses or moving expenses to offer as incentives. That's a problem especially as administrators from neighboring states pull in to Oklahoma to snag recent graduates for positions in their own district.

Without adjusting for cost of living, Oklahoma ranks 49th in the country for teacher pay.

Tonight on the Primetime News at Nine, how the shortage could change who is teaching in your child's classroom.
