One Injured In House Fire In Guymon
12/07/2009

A Sunday afternoon house fire has resulted in the occupant of the home being hospitalized in a Lubbock Burn Center.

Guymon Firefighters responded to a reported house fire at 3:07pm Sunday afternoon. The home located at 1004 ½ N. Ellison had heavy smoke and fire coming from a back side window and the eves of the home on Firefighters arrival. "The fire was called in by multiple people driving by the house", said Assistant Fire Chief Grant Wadley. The resident of the house, James Wynes, was out of the house and receiving first aid treatment from the bystanders on Firefighters arrival. Mr. Wynes was treated at the scene by Fire Department Paramedics, transported to the Guymon Hospital, then later airlifted to a Lubbock Burn Center with burns to his head, face, neck, and hands.

"The home was small and the fire was quickly extinguished by Firefighters", Wadley explained. The home had only 2 rooms and a bathroom with heavy fire damage in only one of the rooms. The interior portion of the house was a total loss from the heavy smoke and heat conditions. Estimated loss to the home and contents is $25,000. Cause of the fire was found to be intentional by Fire Investigators and still under investigation. Guymon Fire Department was assisted by the Guymon Police, Tri-County Electric, and City of Guymon Utilities department.

These winter months are historically known for increase in home fires that result in deaths and serious injury. Most fire deaths occur when people are asleep in their homes. A properly working smoke alarm is a simple and cost effective device that every home should have. Please call the Guymon Fire Department (580) 338-5536 to have free smoke alarms installed in your home or to have batteries replaced.
