McArthur Woman Injured
A McArthur woman received major injuries April 20 in an accident near Ingot.
The 12:35 p.m. accident, according to officer Rudd of the Highway Patrol occurred when Peggy Deatley, 60, allowed her vehicle to drift off the roadway, hitting a dirt/ rock embankment.
Rudd says it is possible that Deatley’s medical, diabetic, condition caused the accident.
She hit the embankment on
the drivers side. Upon impact the Ford rolled on its top and her
right hand became pinned under the roof top.

• Possession of a permit does not protect you if your burn escapes. You are still liable for any suppression costs.
• If a burn escapes your control, you should seek help immediately. Wildfires can spread very quickly. A fast response from the fire department can reduce suppression cost considerably. Remember, you may be billed for suppression costs, so the sooner you seek help the better the outcome may be.
• Simple common sense can greatly reduce the chance of an escape. If you don’t feel it’s safe to conduct a burn, then don’t.

this winter may necessitate an early burn suspension. Please
