News

LUBBOCK, Texas — The Slaton Fire Department was called out just before 1:00 pm Wednesday to the 1300 block of South 10th Street. A fire was reported at that location.

According to officials in Slaton, the structure had been condemned earlier in the day.

Slaton also asked Buffalo Springs to send firefighters to help.

Assistant fire cheif, Cade Kitten, said it took two hours to get the fire out that had spread to a second structure, and that there were no injuries.

“The east side building was on fire initially and it just worked it’s way over across the carport to the other building on the west,” Kitten said.

Kitten said the Slaton Police Department is now investigating the fire.
