Mandatory Evacuations Underway

Mandatory evacuations are underway in northeast Norman because of a fast-moving wildfire. The fire is located between 108th and 120th Avenue NE. People living in the following areas are being asked to leave their homes:  Torrans Lane, Prairie Lane, Mary Lane, Tallywood, Mystic Land and Bethel Road east of 108th NE.

The National Guard is using a Blackhawk helicopter to drop water on the fire from a nearby pond..
