Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
BOSWELL, OK-One Boswell family is now without a home after flames burned it to the ground Monday.
It happened around 3:30 Monday afternoon in the 2000 block of 8th Street. Boswell Fire Chief, Paul Green, said neighbors reported seeing smoke coming out of the roof and when firefighters got there, the house was completely engulfed. He says Boswell, Soper and Bluff firefighters were able to put out the flames after a couple of hours, but the house was destroyed.
Green said no one was in the home during the fire and the state fire marshal will investigate what may have started the blaze.
