Officials in Texas and Oklahoma are now saying nearly 200 homes have been burned by grass fires that have blackened thousands of acres in the two states.
Four people are known to have died.
Currently, crews are battling two large grass fires near Oklahoma City in windy, sunny weather. Fire officials say hundreds of acres are involved. A large column of smoke is rising over the area. There are some homes in the area, but there are no reports of damage.
It doesn't look like things will get a whole lot better in Texas and Oklahoma in the coming days. The National Weather Service predicts a return of hazardous conditions on Saturday. Officials now fear New Year's fireworks could spark another round of fires.
