Dry conditions continue to persist throughout the region, and grass fires have been a daily occurrence in Dallam and Hartley Counties. 

In addition to grass fires, two other fires are also being investigated as arson. June 15, fire fighters responded to a grass fire near Rock Hill Road and Highway 54 as well as near Nevada Street and Texline Street in Dalhart. Dalhart Fire Chief Curtis Brown said those are currently under investigation as arson. 

“We need people to pay attention to who’s around when they notice a fire,” Brown said.
