The Borger Police Department is wanting to make local citizens aware of the adverse side effects of a prescription pain patch that has resulted in the death of a local citizen.
Lt. Anthony Griffin said that earlier this month, the department responded to the death of a 29-year-old male, who appeared to have been abusing the pain patch Fentanyl.
â€śIt appeared as though the man had been smoking portions of the medicated pain patch at the time of his death,â€ť he said. â€śThe man was found deceased in his home by a family member.â€ť
It is okay to pop fireworks for New Yearâ€™s as long as it is done outside city limits.
According to Hutchinson County Fire Marshal Danny Richards stated that the Hutchinson County area has been out of a burn ban since the middle of November.
â€śThere are actually firework stands in the area open for the season,â€ť he stated. He also continued to say there are still some safety tips people should follow. Use fireworks outdoors only. Obey local laws. It is illegal to pop fireworks in the city areas.
