— DRUMRIGHT (AP) — A mobile disaster recovery center is slated to open near Drumright this week to help residents apply for aid after a devastating wildfire burned more than 90 square miles last month in Creek County.
Officials say the center is slated to open Tuesday at a church in Olive, near Drumright.
The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management's deputy director, Michelann Ooten, said the center would make it easier for people in the area to get face-to-face information about assistance.
The center will open at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Olive's First Baptist Church. It will remain there through Sept. 10.
Officials say a disaster recovery center in Mannford will remain open until further notice.
