Fire destroys buildings at Frederick place
Last updated 9/8/2017 at 4:24pm
A hot, smoky day became even hotter and smokier on Monday as several buildings at a farmstead south of Odessa went up in flames. When firefighters arrived at the scene, the buildings were already fully engulfed, including a small unoccupied house. A newer, double-wide mobile home was also located on the same property, home to Dorothy Frederick of Odessa, but it was not affected by the fire. It stood about 150 feet from the buildings that burned, and firefighters were able to keep the flames from reaching it.
As it turned out, Frederick had spent the day in Spokane and so was not home to wit...
