Fire knocks out power to 200 homes

April 28, 2011

A fire in the 900 block of N. Gregg reported Wednesday afternoon caused approximately 200 homes on Big Spring's north side to lose electrical service, but no injuries or serious property damage was reported as a result.

According to Big Spring Fire Marshal Carl Condray, the fire was reported in an alley in the 900 block of N. Gregg Street at approximately 5:32 p.m.

“A storage shed was destroyed by the fire, which also managed to create a grass fire that destroyed about a half-acre nearby,” Condray said. “No habitations were damaged by the fire, which was quickly contained to the area by our firefighters. It's unclear at this time what caused the fire, and whether it was the structure fire that caused the grass fire, or the other way around. It's still under investigation, however.”
