Two fire calls were answered this week in Gillette and one was in the country at the James Daly ranch, 15 miles north of Gillette. The Gillette Volunteer Fire Department was called on Sunday morning at 9:30 to the Study Wrecking yard where an acetylene hose had broken and caught fire. The blaze was extinguished without damage. Tuesday at 11:45 a.m., a grass fire at the Don Bates place in east Gillette, also called out the department. The fire was put out with out damage. It was said to have started from trash burning in an incinerator. About 50 acres of rangeland were burned over at the Daly ranch Monday afternoon shortly after 1 p.m. when the exhaust of a tractor had started the blaze in dry grass. A strong northwest wind quickly pushed the fire over the dry hills.
