Guymon wildfires burning at least 400 acres, partial evacuations issued

A grass fire approximately 20 miles west of Guymon has destroyed around 400 acres of land. Winds are reportedly moving at 40 mph and can cause fire to react unpredictably.

Residents of Guymon West of Sunset Lane and County Road 30 are requested to evacuate to the north or south of Guymon to avoid the path of the fire.
