Fires blow smoke across Rogers County; large fire reported near Inola

INOLA — A large fire is burning in Mayes County at the Rogers County line near Inola while wind blows smoke from fires in Pawnee and Tulsa County over parts of Rogers County, authorities report.

“We’re trying to keep it from jumping over the county line,” Rogers County Emergency Management Director Bob Anderson said at about 4:45 p.m. from the scene of the Mayes County fire.

He said the fire is big but firefighters did not know how big.

Smoky conditions caused by the fires were reported in Claremore this afternoon.
