Relatively Quiet 4th of July For Guymon Fire Department
07/05/2013

Guymon Firefighters remained call free until 9:52pm with the first call of a possible grass fire 4 miles west on Hwy 54. Guymon and Goodwell Fire Departments both responded to find nothing near Hwy 54 but a controlled burn ½ north of Hwy 54. “It’s believed that people traveling on the highway saw the fire from a distance, but not able to give a more exact location”, said Assistant Fire Chief Grant Wadley. The control burn was properly called in prior to it being started and was also properly being monitored by the land owner. 8 minutes into that fire call a second 911 call of a fire was reported in the 1500 block of Sunset. Firefighters responded to reports of trees on fire between 2 homes. Guymon firefighters were able to get the fire under control and quickly saving the houses without any damage. The third and final fire reported was at the golf course parking area at 10:22pm where a utility pole was found on fire. “Residents near the pole attempted to extinguish the fire with garden hoses but unable to completely extinguish it due to the height of the pole”, Wadley said. Firefighters arrived and finished extinguishing the fire. Excluding the control burn, the other 2 reported fires were caused by fireworks. As for the rest of Texas County, Guymon Fire Department dispatched only Goodwell firefighters out on a grass fire at 5:00am this morning, north of Goodwell on Rd. 22 at the Beaver River Bridge. 2 units and firefighters responded and quickly had the fire extinguished, cause of the fire is unknown. No other community Fire Departments were dispatched over the July 4th period. No structures were lost or damaged this year over the July 4th Holiday and most of all no fire injuries were reported to Fire Officials.
