Calmer weather on Wednesday should help firefighters trying to stop wildfires that started in strong winds.

The Storm Prediction Center says gusty winds and low humidity in drought-stricken areas would create unsafe fire conditions in parts of Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a high temperature of 60 degrees (15 degrees Celsius) on Thursday, with winds. Oklahoma Forestry Services reported Tuesday that the largest of the Oklahoma fires has burned more than 388 square miles (1,005 sq. kilometers) near Leedey, and was about 3 percent contained about 110 miles (180 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City. By Tuesday, it covered almost 100,000 hectares in western Oklahoma, and was only three percent contained, said Shawna Hartman, spokesperson for Oklahoma Forestry Services.

However, the strong and gusty winds, along with the low humidity, are expected to remain at least into the weekend.

That fire had grown further by Tuesday afternoon, Oklahoma Emergency Management spokeswoman Keli Cain said, but an updated acreage was not available. No injuries were reported. Wind gusts of 40 miles per hour are forecast, half as strong as on Tuesday.

A southern Colorado wildfire destroyed two more homes Wednesday morning, bringing the total lost to 12.

The blazes are fueled by gusting winds, low humidity and drought-stricken land. In western Oklahoma, homes in Oakwood and Seiling were evacuated Tuesday because of another fire.

Officials report that "normal" tactics to fight the fires aren't working in these abnormal conditions and at least one Type 6 Engine was burned and destroyed April 12.

The smoke from the fires in western Oklahoma is so heavy that firefighters more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) away in Oklahoma City told residents to avoid calling 911 unless they see flames.
