We did a story yesterday but several people did not see it. This is evident from the number of thimes firefighters have had to respond to check it. There is a large gas flare at one of the ruigs in the oilfield both off FM 1314 and SH 242 and also near Four Corners Albert Moorehead area. These flares will be going for the next 90-days at least. With the low clouds and fog it appears to be a major forest fire. Crews are checking these flares 24 hours a day. However many people are seein it and calling the fire department. Due to 911 rules every call that comes in the firefighters are required to respond to, even if they know it is the flare. They have responded over a dozen ties since Monday evening.
PLEASE PASS THE WORD ABOUT THIS FLAME AND SAVE THE FIREFIGHTERS FROM HAVING TO RESPOND.
REMEMBER IF THEY ARE HAVING TO RESPOND TO THIS AN A HOUSE FIRE WITH TRAPPED VICTIMS COMES IN THEY STILL HAVE TO RESPOND TO THE ORIGINAL CALL AND THE SECOND CALL WOULD BE DISPATCHED TO THE NEXT CLOSEST DEPARTMENT WHICH COULD BE MILES AWAY.
