Wildfire victims in Creek and Cleveland counties now have more time to file for disaster assistance. The deadline to apply has been extended to Wednesday, November 21, according to a release from the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"We want to make sure that all eligible residents have enough time to apply for assistance," said Michelann Ooten, OEM Deputy Director.
