|Wildfires fueled by extremely dry conditions and strong winds destroyed dozens of homes in Oklahoma City and North Texas on Tuesday and forced hundreds of residents to evacuate. Most of Texas has been under extreme drought for the past 11 months and persistent triple-digit heat continues to plague most of the state. A ban on outdoor burning is in place in 251 of Texas' 254 counties, the Forest Service said.|
