Wildfire partially contained

July 13, 2011

Howard County's long, hot summer continues.

A trio of wildfires scorched thousands of acres in the eastern half of the county Tuesday, resulting in two volunteer firefighters being sent to a local hospital.

Howard County Volunteer Fire Department Chief Tommy Sullivan said a downed oil company power line sparked the fire.
