Kansas Wildfire Burns, Severe Storms Strike Indiana, Florida [VIDEO]

By

About one inch of snow fell on parts of Kansas and Oklahoma on Easter Sunday and officials say the precipitation provided a boost to their efforts to contain a wildfire described as the largest in Kansas history.

The fire began last week in Oklahoma and spread north to Kansas. Oklahoma Forestry Services, a division of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, says the fire has burned almost 400,000 acres of prairie and ranch land in three counties across two states.

Oklahoma Forestry Services says 370 firefighters are battling the blaze, which is known as the Anderson Creek Fire.
