Cotton gin catches fire, entire Oklahoma town evacuated

A small town in Kiowa County had to be evacuated Tuesday afternoon.

Officials in Lone Wolf tell us the evacuation was necessary because a cotton gin caught fire and they were worried about the chemicals and oil from the gin. Crews were able to bring the chemicals under control before the flames got out of control.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

For reference, Lone Wolf is northwest of Lawton or just north of Lake Altus.
