GUTHRIE, Okla. - Authorities say crews are battling a large wildfire in Logan County, Oklahoma, near Guthrie that has burned several homes.

Guthrie Fire Department Chief Eric Harlow says several relief units have been called in to take over for those that have been fighting the blaze since it started early Sunday evening.

The fire started just southeast of the Seward Road exit on I-35.

The American Red Cross says the blaze has burned a total of about 5-7 square miles of land, including several homes.

High winds and dry conditions fueled several wildfires in Oklahoma on Sunday.
