Sat, 26 Mar 2016 22:26:44 CDT

As of Saturday PM- Oklahoma Forestry Services Calls Anderson Fire 36% Contained- Oklahoma and Kansas Combined The Anderson Creek Fire remains at 397,420 acres. Due to diligent firefighting efforts, the fire is now 36% contained, including both Oklahoma and in Kansas. The Anderson Creek Fire perimeter was being flown again today to determine if there are any acreage updates.



From the air, Oklahoma Forestry Services officials report that over 1,000 bales of hay, hundreds of miles of fence line and numerous cattle were lost in the Anderson Creek Fire. Oklahoma Emergency Management damage assessments are on-going. Numbers will be more refined throughout the day.



Livestock producers who have been impacted by the fire need to contact their county Farm Service Agency (FSA) Office. The FSA office has programs that can assist producers who have lost cattle, hay and grass due to the wildland fires. Livestock producers can locate and find the contact information for their FSA county office by clicking here.



For those who would like to contribute monetarily, you can do so by mail or online via the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation. Make checks payable to Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation and put "Fire Relief" in the memo line and send to P.O. Box 82395, Oklahoma City, OK 73148. Visit the OCA website for details and the option to donate online- available here.


The latest word we have had is that adequate amounts of hay have been donated at this time. Cash donations are encouraged.
