San Angelo won a "fickle finger of fate" award from the Rowan and Martin laugh in when the lake caught fire way back when. There was a fire truck stuck in there then too. I think we need to be careful fighting those brush fires at the lake!

And San Angelo won it again when their brand spanking new high rise truck was burned when it was parked too close to a fire at a drive in movie theater screen. (btw-there was a fire truck stuck in the twin buttes grass fire back then too) This stuff is not new to San Angelo...things just happen. Bless our firefighters!
