Sherry’s Shots In spite of the unusual amount of rain Leon County received earlier in the year we’ve now hit the “dry” season and folks are cautioned about being careless, especially when it comes to cigarettes being thrown out car windows. On Friday, July 17 when temperatures were approaching 100 several fire departments were called to fight two grass fires on I45 where it crosses Highway 79.

According to Buffalo Chief of Police Lance Pavelka, an ambulance driver, who responded to the emergency, was injured when he was hit by a vehicle. The driver was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
