Firefighters with the Big Spring Fire Department and Howard County Volunteer Fire Department battled blazes around the intersection of Second Street and San Jacinto for much of Monday evening, as a structure fire ignited several grass fires in the area.

The structure fire, which was reported at approximately 5:30 p.m. at a home located behind the Big Spring Harley Davidson dealership, destroyed much of the home, including a shed and garage structure that housed several vehicles.

Firefighters on the scene speculated the blaze began due to a short circuit in electrical wiring.

Thankfully, Howard, Marijo

Thankfully, Howard, Marijo and Bruce Walker were unhurt in the fire that claimed so many possessions. Through their Harley-Davidson shop — the oldest in the state of Texas — they have helped raise many thousands of dollars for groups and individuals over the years and now, it's time for Big Spring, Howard County and West Texas to give back to these who have unselfishly helped so many others.
