Wind-whipped house fire
firethorn fire

A stiff, chilly, north wind hindered members of the Great Bend Fire Department Wednesday afternoon as they battled a house fire at 419 Firethorn in southeast Great Bend. Firefighters were on the scene for some time as smoke roiled from the home, filling the air with an acrid, grey-brown cloud. No details were available at this time, but no one was believed to have been injured.
