ALVA, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma Forestry Services says several structures, numerous cattle and more than 1,000 bales of hay have burned in a wildfire that has scorched about 620 square miles in Oklahoma and Kansas.

Forestry services spokeswoman Michelle Finch-Walker said Saturday the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management is still assessing the damage. She said officials estimate that 36 percent of the fire is now contained.

Livestock producers should contact their county Farm Service Agency, which has programs to assist producers who have lost cattle.

There is also a hay donation repository that’s been established west of Alva to accept donations of hay to producers.
