Long exposure to excessive heat causes symptoms that become progressively worse unless you get out of the heat and do what is necessary to care for yourself. These are tips from Emergency Staffing Solutions Medical Director for Borger, Dr. Peter Way.
1. Initially, lack of water (or loss of water and salt from heavy sweating) will cause cramps; painful spasms that usually center in the legs, but can also occur in the stomach and arms. (A note about â€śthirstâ€ť: By the time your body tells you that you are thirsty, youâ€™re already mildly dehydrated.)
A fire consumed a storage shed on the 200 block of Par Street late Thursday morning.
According to Hutchinson County Fire Marshal Danny Richards, the fire caused around $25,000 in damage to the structure and items concealed inside. The storage unit belonged to the Rich family.
The fire started about 11:14 a.m. and was out at 12:05 p.m. The storage building caught flames due to an overloaded extension cord supplying power to a swimming pool and its equipment. No injuries were reported. The Borger Fire Department responded to the call.
