A cigarette butt, inadvertently thrown on a windy day, brought the Hays Fire Department to the Pheasant Run restaurant, 3201 Vine, just after 2:30 p.m. on Friday.
Fire crews used foam to break down the surface tension on a burning landscape timber. The fire, which could have spread in the high wind, was extinguished quickly
This is reminder for those who smoke. Be extra careful on windy days.
