Dalhart firefighters responded to a grass fire Monday afternoon near Rock Hill Road and Highway 54 at approximately 1:39 p.m., as well as a grass fire near Nevada Street and Texline Street on the north side of Dalhart (above) just before 5 p.m. Monday. Dalhart Fire Chief Curtis Brown said the department has been on at least 23 fire calls so far this month as of yesterday morning. While dry conditions have helped fuel fires, Brown said the number of calls received by the department are comparable to other years.
