UPDATE: Oklahoma officials say the Starbuck Fire that started in Beaver County is now 17% contained. This blaze burned through Beaver and Harper counties and well into the state of Kansas. There are more than 600,000 acres burned.
Any change in acreage, according to the Oklahoma Forestry Service, is because of more accurate mapping and not because of the spread of the fire. The Service says there is very little active flame in the footprints of the fires, only some smoldering.
It's day three of the Starbuck Fire with 715,000 acres charred, 185,000 of those acres in Beaver County, Oklahoma.
The blaze started in Beaver County on Monday, March 6th and has now moved north to Kansas. Officials say numerous structures and livestock have been lost.
The Starbuck Fire is just one of three burning in three Oklahoma counties referred to as the Northwest Oklahoma Complex Fire. In total they have burned more than 830,000 acres in the Oklahoma Panhandle. All together, the blaze is 10 percent contained as of Wednesday afternoon. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry says numerous communities remain threatened and there is no sign of containing the fire.
