Early last week, the Anthony Fire Department along with neighboring departments of Argonia, Harper, Hazelton, Kiowa, Amorita, Byron and Manchester were called out to fight grass fires southwest of Anthony near Waldron. According to Anthony Firefighter Mark Phiefer, the fire was started when a telephone line company had a truck stuck causing the start of the fire.
