Oklahoma Highway Patrol shut down sections of Highway 412 because the heavy smoke from area wildfires made it impossible for motorist to see safely. Some people left their homes but were able to head back inside.

Sand Springs Police say several people reported seeing two young men, possibly teenagers, on a red motorcycle starting the fires.

If you do happen to see these people or know anything that you think could help, call Sand Springs Police.
