OKLAHOMA CITY - A wildfire burned intensely in northeast Oklahoma City on Wednesday night as firefighters worked feverishly to protect homes in the Shadow Ridge housing addition.

Oklahoma City Fire Chief Keith Bryant told Eyewitness News 5 that he felt confident that crews could get the fire contained soon -- but the fight to garner control of the flames could last all night. By 10:30 p.m., firefighters were confident that they had spared homes in the vicinity of NE 122nd Street and Midwest Boulevard.

For a second day, wildfires burned across central Oklahoma -- including blazes in northeast Oklahoma City, southeast Oklahoma City, Payne County and Pottawatomie County.
