No one injured in garage fire

A family's summer vacation was interrupted after a fire began in the garage behind their home on North Mount in Fairfield. No one was in the garage when the fire began. Melinda Peterson reported her daughter had just finished mowing and stowed the mower in the garage when they heard an explosion. What caused the fire has not been confirmed. Her husband, Jerry, was at his automotive repair shop, MAP Services, when the fire began. Fairfield and Teague fire departments arrived on the scene to put out the fire. Melinda also reported the garage held 4-wheelers and the lawn mower.

4th graders enjoy Food for America

Fairfield fourth graders learned where their food comes from at the annual Food for America event held last week at the fairgrounds. Students learned facts about dairy products, watched a dairy cow be milked, toured an ambulance and a fire truck, learned about recycling, FFA and Young Farmers, and much more. While learning about snakes and alligators, the students were able to see and touch live snakes and a baby alligator. Volunteers from the community – including EMS, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and firefighters – donated their time to this yearly event sponsored by the Fairfield Young Farmers and FFA.
