A Big Spring man was injured and taken to the burn unit at University Medical Center in Lubbock as a result of a fire reported early Monday morning in the 1100 block of Jeffery Road.
According to Tommy Sullivan, HCVFD chief, the fire was reported just after 1 a.m. at 1107 Jeffery Rd., located in southern Howard County.
Any worries the Big Spring Aquatics Center would lose its allure to area water-seekers after its opening year can be safely placed to rest, as the facility continues to draw capacity-level crowds with the beginning of its second season.
The aquatic center â€” which opened last summer to fill the void left when the municipal swimming pool was shut down because it failed to meet state and federal regulations â€” has opened its 2012 season to much fanfare, according to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Monday and 7 a.m. today:
â€¢ DAVID REY GONZALES JR., 24, of 1425 E. Sixth St. Apt. 112, was arrested Monday on a charge of unlawfully carrying a weapon.
