Officials say it’s a record they never wanted to see: So far, nearly 660,000 acres have burned in Kansas wildfires this week. More than three-quarters of that number occurred in two counties, Clark and Comanche. At this point, one person has died, and thousands of animals perished or had to be euthanized.
