Jetmore Fire Department and emergency services were dispatched this past Tuesday at approximately 2 p.m. to a trash fire just southwest of Jetmore that had been left unattended and had gotten out of control consuming nearly 400 acres of Hodgeman County land. Additional agencies were called in to assist in getting the fire under control including the Hanston Fire Department and Ness City Fire Department. Several local citizens lent a hand as well and a thank you goes out to all who assisted in bringing this blazing beast under control. The Hodgeman County Sheriff and local Fire Chief would like to remind residents to be prepared when burning by having water nearby (hose, bucket, extinguisher, etc.) in the event that the fire should escape it’s containment area.
