Fires sweep through middle of Vernon
A wind-fueled fire swept along a line for nearly four blocks through Vernon on Sunday evening. Two houses, and a garage burned down. Several fences and outbuildings sustained damage. Yards and trees were burnt to a crisp.
The fire was part of a series of blazes that scorched northwest Texas and southwest Oklahoma, over a long weekend of fires.
