Fire department fights two fires on Wednesday

The Perryton Fire Department had two calls late on Wednesday, Feb. 13, fighting a hay fire south of Farnsworth that set a corral made of railroad ties on fire, and later fighting a grass fire in the south part of the county on FM 281.

According to Fire Chief Paul Dutcher the first call came in at 5:15 p.m. He said that the hay fire was located two miles south and one mile west of Farnsworth on the Buschman Ranch.

The hay was kept in a corral made out of old railroad ties. Chief Dutcher said the likely cause of the hay fire was spontaneous combustion. The burning hay set the railroad ties on fire.
