Fire on the mountain: 15,000 acres scorched by blaze

June 21, 2011

A pair of wildfires destroyed more than 15,000 acres of land and at least two homes Monday, as firefighters prepare for even more devastation today.

The first fire was reported early Monday afternoon near Cauble Road in the southwest portion of the county, according to Howard County Volunteer Fire Department Chief Tommy Sullivan.

“The Cauble Road fire destroyed about 400 acres,” Sullivan said. “We were really lucky with that one because we were able to stop it right at the roadway. If it had jumped across, we would be talking about a lot more acres of land than we are now.”

It's a competition between Army and Marines — well, sort of.

Odis Franklin, former Army Sergeant, and Bill Markunas, former Marine Sergeant, will be taking part in the Ironman 70.3 competition in Lubbock June 26.

“We have a little joke going, it's to see who's better, the Army or the Marines,” Franklin said jokingly.
