KATV is all over news (link corrected) of a wildfire near Ola in Yell County that poses enough threat that the entire town of about 1,200 has been cleared and a shelter opened in a nearby high school.

Channel 7 also reports that the fire is near a fireworks business, but additional reports seem to indicate firefighters are having success containing the fire.
