OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Firefighters from Oklahoma are heading west to help battle wildfires.

Oklahoma Forestry Services has begun receiving orders to send help and five OFS firefighters have been sent to help fight fires in Oregon. Officials say additional orders from the National Interagency Coordination Center for more firefighters and equipment are expected.

OFS assistant director and Fire Management Chief Mark Goeller says recent rain across Oklahoma have reduced the fire danger and allows the agency to provide help in other states.
