After the Rhea Fire grew to 283,095 acres and only being 15% contained as of Thursday morning, Dewey County, among other counties in Oklahoma, is in desperate need for rain. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10156438188039874/ Lucky for them, there is some relief in sight. Rain will fall Friday-Saturday for parts of OK and TX where fires have been growing rapidly Rain is expected to fall Friday with better chances for rain on Saturday for parts of Oklahoma. Because rain chances are not around until Friday, fire danger remains high to very high across a large portion of the state. The most significant fire danger is in the far western portion of the Oklahoma Panhandle. Also as of Thursday morning, the 34 Complex fire located in Woodward County was burning 67,778 acres and estimated at 45% contained. While the Laverne and Hooker Fire were once of concern, crews say that they are at 80% and 100% contained, respectively. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10156437525664874/ The Rhea Fire started on April 12 and authorities are still unsure of what caused the fire.
