COMANCHE COUNTY, Oklahoma -- A wildfire burning northwest of Indiahoma is now 75 percent contained, according to the Comanche County Emergency Management office.

The wildfire began burning late Wednesday morning. Firefighters, mostly volunteers, from 16 area departments and multiple task forces have been on scene since the flames were first reported. The American Red Cross is also on scene providing drinks and food for all of the firefighters battling the blaze.

Officials estimate the flames have burned about 9,000 acres. At one point, the wildfire threatened about 100 homes, but only three were evacuated. The fire has not destroyed any structures.

There have also been no serious injuries, but some firefighters have been treated for heat exhaustion.
