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.

The largest of the three blazes — in the vicinity of Garrett Ranch in eastern Howard County — consumed more than 3,000 acres and was only partially contained at midday today.

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