OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The National Weather Service is warning that the danger of wildfires across the state will be high today and Tuesday. Bruce Thoren with the National Weather Service says humidities are expected to be around 20 percent and winds will be near 20 miles per hour to create likely conditions for wildfires.

The fire danger is expected to be reduced to moderate on Wednesday but return to a high danger Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

A fire Sunday burned about 150 acres in southwest Norman.

No injuries are reported.
