What possibly began with an unattended cigarette in a shed, resulted in a 30 acre fire including a house, a vehicle, and many cedar trees this afternoon North of town. The fire, just outside of city limits on Neill Road, northeast of FM 700 and south of Anderson Road was reported at approximately 3:35 PM this afternoon.
 
Howard County Volunteer Fire Department, Big Spring Fire Department, Howard County Sheriff’s Office, and Howard County Road & Bridge responded and managed to save the 5 structures that were in danger. 
 
The blaze was primarily distributed by hot cedar tree embers that blew onto other structures. Several witnesses reported “exploding trees” which carried the embers into the bed of a pickup truck containing debris that quickly spread the flames throughout the vehicle. In spite of the quick rate at which the fire spread, the response team was faster. Howard County Fire Chief Mitchell Hooper was proud of the team’s performance.
 
Chief Hooper also reported that there were no structures lost in yesterday’s fire, and no injuries. The cause of the blaze was determined as possibly a cigarette left in a shed, and appears to be accidental.
