Huge Flames
With firefighters busy on the other side of the blaze, a county employee in a pickup keeps watch as tall flames erupt along the eastern edge of a thicket of salt cedars a few miles southwest of Lamesa on Monday evening. The fire started out as a controlled burn to get rid of the salt cedars, but wind speeds got stronger after the fire was underway and caused its flames to spread quickly out of hand.
