Cherokee Nation Fire Program helps suppress 85 wildfires


TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Within the first two months of the year, the Cherokee Nation Fire Program has responded to more than 85 fires in Oklahoma, sending crews out this week to fires in Adair, Delaware and Mayes counties and helping with another in Arkansas.

Due to the higher volume of wildfires throughout the Cherokee Nation’s 14-county jurisdiction, the Cherokee Nation firefighters are working with the Zuni Tribe of New Mexico and Spirit Lake Tribe of North Dakota, who were commissioned to Tahlequah by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to help battles these fires.
