CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) -- Officials say 911 service in a part of northwest Rogers County has been interrupted.

Residents living in the 275 exchange, primarily in the town of Talala, weren't able to call 911 without getting a busy signal all Wednesday.

Emergency management spokesman John Wylie says some residents haven't been able to get any calls outside their exchange.

Wylie says anyone who needs to make a 911 call in that exchange can instead call 341-3535. He says the same people who answer that number also answer the 911 system.

Residents also can go to the fire station at Willow and Sequoyah streets for help.
