An Oklahoma fire victim says he feels as if he's living a "bad dream." Everything he's worked for has gone up in smoke.

The man's home in Stephens County is one of more than 50 that were destroyed in a series of wildfires across the state this week.

Seven firefighters were injured. One remains in critical condition.

Although light showers have sprinkled Oklahoma, firefighters were still monitoring hot spots last night. Arson is suspected in at least some of the fires.

Officials say 27 fires across Oklahoma Wednesday charred more than 13 and a-half-thousand acres. Since November First, nearly a-half (m) million acres in the state have burned.
