Fifteen years almost went up in smoke this week. T

he warehouse containing lights, displays and other items used in the annual Comanche Trail Festival of Lights was in the path of flames during Sunday's west side fire. Because of firefighters' quick response, the warehouse did not receive any damage, but light displays outside were burned.

“Thank the Lord and the firefighters that more damage wasn't done,” Pat Simmons, founder of the Festival of Lights, said Tuesday. “The damage could have been a lot worse.”
