Gov.  Fallin has declared a state of emergency for all 77 counties in the state of Oklahoma. Fallin also issued an executive proclamation declaring a burn ban for 36 counties.

The Governor’s Burn Ban covers 36 counties  in western and south-central Oklahoma, according to the Proclamation. Those counties are Alfalfa, Beaver, Beckham, Blaine, Caddo, Canadian, Cimarron, Cleveland, Comanche, Cotton, Custer, Dewey, Ellis, Garfield, Grady, Grant, Greer, Harmon, Harper, Jackson, Kingfisher, Kiowa, Lincoln, Logan, Major, McClain, Noble, Oklahoma, Payne, Pawnee, Roger Mills, Texas, Tillman, Washita, Woods and Woodward.

The largest fire in Oklahoma so far has burned more than 4,000 acres and destroyed at least six homes, and three dozen other buildings, killing one person, said fire officials in Guthrie, adding that the numbers are likely to rise.

More than 1,000 people were ordered to evacuate the fire disaster zone.
